The treasured Harris Tweed trademark is not given lightly. Only cloths that pass muster are credited with the name and the production methods are protected by law. The Harris Tweed Act of Parliament 1993 requires that the cloth must be woven in the Outer Hebrides by islanders in their own homes. It is one of the few surviving and thriving cottage industries and that precious trademark is an assurance of highest quality.
Harris Tweed was originally used to produce clothing for Scottish farm and estate workers. In the 19th century the English Nobility began buying up estates in Scotland and took a liking to the durable, breathable, water repellent fabric that boasted such elegant looks. They began wearing Harris Tweed themselves and the cloth's association with the wealthy soon made it very popular throughout the nation.
Thankfully Harris Tweed has been protected and so has remained immune from the influence of cheap imports and lower grade imitations. Its timelessness, elegance and practicality have ensured that it has transcended the fickle nature of fashion and today it is as popular as it has ever been. In buying Harris Tweed purses and wallets you are assured of the highest quality and of accessories which will serve you well.
You really can't go wrong with Harris Tweed, the heritage cloth of Scotland. It deserves a place in every wardrobe to ensure that the weaving tradition is preserved for future generations and that a slice of Scotland can travel with you everywhere!
