A Harris tweed bag has to be the champagne of quintessentailly Hebridean gifts. Woven through with the culture, landscape and history of the Isle of Harris, every 100% pure new wool warp and weft of this glorious fabric reflects the wild land and seascape palette of our beautiful Western Isles.
Harris Tweed really is like Champagne, in that it is made only within its locale. Even more uniquely, it has to be handmade on a loom at home. The tweed must be made using only pure new wool, dyed, spun and finished in the Outer Hebrides.
This has to be the ultimate in homespun, community made, local produce, artisanal through and through. From the land, comes the cloth.
While you can buy Harris Tweed cloth by the metre, Western Isles artisans have also been getting creative with this fabulous fabric to offer you a range of gorgeous Harris tweed accessories.
