Harris Tweed – A history
Across the waters from Scotland, beyond the Isle of Skye lies the barren, rocky island of Harris. One hundred and fifty years ago, the islanders created a unique cloth, a tweed entirely woven by hand that was to become world famous, known simply as it is today as 'Harris Tweed'.

Originally, the wool was washed in soft, peat water and then coloured with dyes from local plants and moss scraped from the rocks.

The yarn was woven on a very early type of handloom that had a manually operated shuttle.

In 1909, to ensure that the fabric was not in danger of being imitated, and of inferior quality, the 'Harris Tweed Authority' was formed. They devised the now famous 'Orb' trademark, which appears on every single Harris Tweed item to prove that it is made from genuine Harris Tweed.

To this day, Harris Tweed is the only fabric in the world protected by an Act of Parliament. This states that is must be 'made with 100% pure virgin wool, dyed, spun and finished in the Outer Hebrides and woven by hand by the Islanders in their homes on the Islands of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra'.

The unique Act is policed by the Harris Tweed Authority, who monitors all fabric on a daily basis. Every 50 metres of fabric is inspected and approved before being stamped by hand with the orb trademark. No other fabric can call itself Harris Tweed.

It is amazing to think that in this mechanised and mass produced world, Harris Tweed is still woven by hand on the Western Isles of Scotland.
