Beautiful quality and beautifully made! I'm so happy with my Harris Tweed hottie. Lynda was quick at responding to my questions and she's a true artist! Would be lovely to stay at her B&B some time in the future. Would certainly recommend to others. 😄🏴

I absolutely love my new tea cosy. Lynda was really helpful with choosing the Harris Tweed. I was kept up to date when it had been made and when it was dispatched. It arrived the day after.
Not only does my tea cosy look like no other it’s also very good at keeping the pot hot. Would highly recommend!

Quite simply, I was taught to sew as a child. My mother was a seamstress. I could not go out and play without having done the chores which included sewing, and mending. So from an early age, with Mums tutoring, I made clothes, Christmas presents and all manner of things with buttons and fabrics.
Moving the clock on a few years, I came to live in Scotland and was introduced to Harris Tweed. I started making a few handbags for friends, then I was commissioned to make something else, and then something else, and so it went on. I now make 40+ products, from Harris Tweed. I personally go to the Isle of Harris and choose the colors and weaves that are used in the tweeds of Dower House Tweed Collection.
What has emerged is my maternal love of all things Kiwi, so many of the products you see will have Kiwiana lining, which might be a Ponga forest; Pukekos, one of our native birds, jandles, sheep or some other aspects of typical Kiwi life. For me, being a Kiwi, and married to a Scot it is the perfect match of 2 great countries, of heritage and culture, of using new funky kiwi prints with traditional tweeds and tartans – of where, some of my ancestors came from – warm, homely.
In 2011 we bought the Dower House and I set about to make curtains, cushions, lampshades and much more. There is a real warmth to the house and the tweed cloth fits so perfectly with the timber furniture from New Zealand, that came along for the journey - Harris Tweed compliments our house, our furniture, the rooms, the decor and the name began to stick! Now its more than just the tweeds, it about the garden and the produce too, but that is another story!
We make practical, easy to use products that wear well and brighten your kitchen, dining room or add another dimension to your wardrobe. From the cafeteria cover that will give you a smile when you see the Buzzy Bees to the mobile pocket that is filled with sheep, or the comfy cushions you ordered after you stayed our bed and breakfast.
....you know you always said it is one place you would like to go, well now you have both countries in the one place......
Enjoy having a part of something special and different that is made by hand in Scotland.

Tweeds from The Dower House are a fusion of my Kiwi heritage with the great Harris Tweed for a very distinctive product range. Great funky kiwi themes add humor and color to our selection of Harris Tweeds. They will make your grin and chuckle!
