What makes the ‘Harris Tweed collection’ so unique is their cooperative of skilled islanders. Bringing together a collection of artisans all with the same passion for the ancient skill of producing and processing wool into the most stunning fabrics. This is a truly sustainable way of life. Based on the islands of the outer hebrides. Each fabric is handwoven on various looms in a number of carefully selected workshops throughout the islands before ending up in the Harris Tweed Mill for final inspection before the stamp of authority may be given.
About Harris Tweed:
“Harris Tweed is the only fabric in the world governed by its own Act of Parliament. Handwoven by the islanders at their homes in the Outer Hebrides, finished in the Outer Hebrides, and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides.” -The Harris Tweed Authority
The long, barren archipelago on the far northwest tip of Europe is home to every weaver, dyer, blender, carder, spinner, warper, finisher and inspector of Harris Tweed cloth. No part of the process takes place elsewhere.
As such, the land and people are woven into the very fabric of the cloth, reflecting as it does the colours of the landscapes, the beauty of our vistas and the values of our people.
To the north of the remote string of islands lies the Isle of Lewis – a rugged and bleakly beautiful land of heather and moor, loch and stream – home to the main harbour town of Stornoway and the three Harris Tweed mills.
