Reasons to love Harris Tweed

PROTECTION

The Harris Tweed Act 1993 enshrines in law that every meter of Harris Tweed will conform to exacting standards and adhere to the legal definition of Harris Tweed. Where you see the Orb Mark, you are guaranteed the cloth is authentically produced in the Outer Hebrides as outlined in the Act.


HISTORY

For well over a century Harris Tweed has been woven with skill and care by crofters in their own homes just as it is today. From the gentry of early 20th century high living to the catwalks and couturiers of today, Harris Tweed has long been the choice of the discerning.


INDIGENUS

By law all Harris Tweed must be produced in the Outer Hebrides and nowhere else. Each inch of wool is dyed and spun in an island mill and every yard is handwoven in the homes of a Harris Tweed weaver. These skills are passed down from generation to generation of the islands community with pride.


NATURAL

Low-impact production and reliance on natural materials throughout, Harris Tweed is a truly ecologically sound textile. Biodegradable, non-allergenic, energy efficient manufacture..
Harris Tweed is truly a fabric for the 21st century.


PROVENANCE

Made of 100% Pure New Wool, Harris Tweed is dyed, blended, carded, spun, warped, woven, finished, examined and stamped only in the Scottish Outer Hebrides by local crofters and artisans.


PRACTICALITY

Harris Tweed is warm in winter and cool in summer. It resists water and wear and tear with ease, cleans easily and can be repaired with the simplest of tools.


LONGEVITY

You may pay a little more for your Harris Tweed Dog Bed from Eleanor & Urquhart but it pays you back by standing standing the test of time. The cloth never goes out of style and simply gets better with age.


ARTISANAL

Woven on treadle powered looms, Harris Tweed is crafted by hand without the aid of automation or electricity. Weavers's skills take months to learn and years to master and every step of the Harris Tweed process is in the hands of skilled islanders, from dyeing to delivery.

BEAUTY

Harris Tweed is literally dyed in the wool, with separate pigments wool carefully blended to special recipes before being spun. Just one single yarn can contain several different colours in order to obtain the perfect tone or hue, each reflecting some aspect of our natural surroundings. Heathers, mosses, lochs, mountains and sky, all entwined to make beautiful Harris Tweed.
