Our Patterned Hand is currently the only retailer outside the Hebrides to stock Harris Tweed!
Harris Tweed has been described as the 'Champagne of Fabrics' and is the only fabric in the world governed by its own act of Parliament.
The law decrees that genuine Harris Tweed must be made from pure virgin wool which has been dyed and spun on the islands and handwoven at the home of the weaver in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. The cloth is then returned to the mill for finishing. Only then can it be given the famous Orb stamp which authenticates it. Each piece of tweed can be traced back to the individual home weaver.
This is special stuff!
