Harris Tweed Buttons - Shoplivepages::jquery();?>
HARRIS TWEED is more than a unique handwoven textile, it is also a story about a real place with a rich history and culture, beautiful landscape and vibrant communities located in Scotland’s remote and beautiful islands of the Outer Hebrides. In recent years the industry and its brand have grown to be recognised worldwide.
There is only one HARRIS TWEED.
HARRIS TWEED is one of the world’s great textiles and the only one with a unique provenance preserved by an Act of Parliament and protected by the world-famous Orb Mark certified by the Harris Tweed Authority. For many generations the islanders of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra in Scotland’s wild and beautiful Outer Hebrides have woven cloth in their own homes, known as HARRIS TWEED. Made from pure virgin wool that is dyed, spun, processed and finished by artisans in the Outer Hebrides, cloth cannot be HARRIS TWEED, or called HARRIS TWEED, if it does not meet the legal definition on the 1993 Act and carry the famous Orb Mark stamped by the Harris Tweed Authority. As well as being natural, biodegradable, non-allergenic and water-repellent, HARRIS TWEED is energy-efficient to create and beautiful, durable and practical to use. From remote crofts to couture catwalks HARRIS TWEED is the choice of fashion and interior designers who value its provenance, classic style and its ability to improve with age. Every metre of cloth is certified with the famous OrbMark and guaranteed to be genuine HARRIS TWEED of the highest quality and craftsmanship.
