The Harris Tweed Story
The exclusive and luxurious Harris Tweed is the world’s only cloth with a protected provenance, governed by an Act of Parliament. 100% Pure New Wool is dyed, blended, carded, spun and warped in the Hebridean mills. The yarn is delivered to the weavers home where the Harris Tweed is woven on a treadle loom. It returns to the mill where it is checked, stamped, certified and guaranteed to be genuine and of high quality. The islands of the Outer Hebrides are home to the entire process. The rare character and beauty of Harris Tweed is attributable to the fact that it is the only fabric produced in commercial quantities by truly traditional methods anywhere in the world.
