Bernat Klein was born in Senta, Yugoslavia (now Serbia) in 1922 to Jewish parents who worked in textiles.  Settled in Galasheils, in the Scottish Borders, Klein revolutionised Scottish fashion with his bold-coloured innovatively woven fabrics inspired by nature.  His tweeds were bought by big fashion houses like Coco Chanel, Dior and Yves Saint Laurent.
