ABOUT HARRIS TWEED: A beautiful, intricate luxury fabric famed for its unique quality and heritage. It is woven from pure virgin wools, principally taken from flocks reared on the Scottish mainland. All Harris Tweed is inspected and certified by the Harris Tweed Authority, and stamped for authenticity with the Orb logo.
The official definition of Harris Tweed is "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 unique process used to manufacture Harris Tweed ensures it remains one of the most sought-after fabrics in the World, which is understandable when you appreciate the attention to detail that is lavished upon this fine cloth.
