Tender has its roots in antique workwear and machinery, especially from the Great British Steam Age. An important face of Tender’s English–made clothing is the nurture which is put into the clothes: in their research, design, manufacture and wear. Tender’s goal is for the owner to live with their clothes, wearing them hard, but respecting their provenance and the stories they have to tell.

Muslin is named for the city of Mosul, in Iraq, where is was first woven.The unusually fine cotton cloth was described by Marco Polo in The Travels, of 1298, and it is referred to by Petronius in the Satyricon (54CE).
Muslin became very popular in 18th Century France, when it was mainly woven and exported from Mughal Bengal. It is traditionally used in Britain as a wrapping for boiled suet puddings, such as Christmas pudding.
