Harris Tweed Hebrides reimagining a Heritage Fabric

Sponsored Content

Introducing the Harris Tweed Hebrides AW22-23 collection with a unique yarn colour palette inspired by the rich Hebridean landscape and seascape.

A spectrum of colour – soft to dark neutrals, sand to earthy browns, moss to forest green, moorland heather & bracken, sunrise & sunset colours, sky & Atlantic Ocean blues.

The new Harris Tweed® collection is an exciting mix of reimagined heritage archive patterns, vintage style, retro stripes & checks, along with mini and maxi weave effects. Signature herringbone patterns include contrast colours, 3-pin windowpane check, and classic windowpane. Playing with scale and colour harmonies we have developed two new Glen Checks to mix and match, Little Glen and Glenurquhart.

In this age of sustainability, the unchanging characteristics of Harris Tweed® are more valuable than ever. For more than a century, Harris Tweed® has been recognised as one of the world’s most durable – as well as fashionable – fabrics. The soft, Hebridean water used in our mill reduces the chemicals required in the production process. Our on-site effluent management minimises the impact on local infrastructure and complies with strict guidelines set by the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency.

Harris Tweed® must always be handwoven in the weaver’s home, once a standard practice within the British textiles industry. Over the centuries this has largely disappeared, the Harris Tweed®industry remains a rare exception to that rule. Harris Tweed Hebrides provide a vital contribution to the local economy of the islands and sustainable rural employment to mill workers and home weavers living in the most remote communities in the Scottish Hebrides.

Harris Tweed Hebrides, based in the village of Shawbost in Outer Hebrides of Scotland, manufacture each metre of handwoven fabric in accordance with The Harris Tweed Act 1993, maintaining the integrity & distinctive character of the fabric recognised globally as Harris Tweed®. Produced using traditional skills & always made from 100% pure new wool, scoured wool is dyed & spun in our mill & handwoven in the weaver’s home. It is then returned to our mill for finishing before it is stamped with the Orb certification mark.
