Did You Know
All Harris Tweed® is hand woven on a treadle loom at each weaver’s home on the Isle of Lewis, not at a mill.
The wool is dyed prior to being spun as opposed to dying the yarn, to create a myriad of intricate shades and hues. The tweed is then returned to the mill to be finished by expert darners. The final process is the examination by the independent Harris Tweed Authority and the Orb Trademark is applied as the ultimate seal of approval. Only then can it be called Harris Tweed.
Harris Tweed® is a truly ecologically sound textile, it is also non-allergenic and biodegradable.
