How Harris Tweed is made

Gunn Tartan in Harris TweedI’m just back from a few days in the Hebrides, meeting Harris Tweed producers. I knew a bit about it before my visit, and like many people have always adored the fabric purely for its aesthetic quality. But now I’ve actually seen exactly how it’s produced I love it more than ever. So I wanted to share some of this…

So why is Harris Tweed so special? Here’s a fully illustrated piece I’ve just put together explaining, step by step, How Harris Tweed is Made. I hope you’ll find this as fascinating as I do!

Within a few weeks we expect to have literally hundreds of traditional patterns on sale, plus thousands of tartans which we can also weave as Harris Tweed, which will certainly mean we’ll have the largest retail choice of Harris Tweed anywhere in the world. Watch this space.
