Harris Tweed brings you authentic Scottish heritage in a wonderful fabric with qualities so treasured that its traditional production methods are protected by law. To carry the Harris Tweed label the fabric must be woven by the islanders of the Outer Hebrides in their own homes and without automation. The weaving of Harris Tweed is one of the few surviving cottage industries and that is something to be savoured.
The beautiful tweed is woven with a blend of fibres from island breeds and Scottish Cheviot and Blackface sheep reared on the mainland. The cloth therefore benefits from the qualities of each type of wool. There are three mills on the islands where the wool is dyed into a variety of colours which are blended by hand using specific recipes. Yarn is then produced and supplied to the local weavers who fashion the cloth in a painstaking process which produces exceptional results. The cloth is then washed to remove impurities and beaten to soften it. Only after a detailed inspection can the cloth be granted the all-important Harris Tweed label.
Harris Tweed is an investment in Scottish heritage, traditional skills and supreme quality. There is nothing quite like Harris Tweed and that label assures you that you are enjoying the genuine article.
