Harris Tweed Hebrides have launched a rather nice new website replete with oodles of info and exclusive online collections.
It’s been a good year for Harris Tweed Hebrides and I’ve been fortunate to work with them on an interiors project this year, bring the tweed to a restored 110 year old Glasgow pub.
Harris Tweed Hebrides, the award-winning company based at Shawbost on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis, now accounts for more than 90 per cent of Harris Tweed production.
They export to over 50 countries and their customers over the past year have included Alexander McQueen, Calvin Klein and Vivienne Westwood.
Harris Tweed Hebrides, which was founded only in late 2007, is generally credited with having revitalized the industry and taken the fabric into the front-line of 21st century fashion and design.
The company was named Textile Brand of the Year 2009 at the Vogue.COM Scottish Fashion Awards and given the major accolade for Outstanding Contribution at the 2009 Scottish Style Awards.
They use a range of more than 100 yarns which can be made up into thousands of patterns by their highly skilled workforce and represent generations of experience in this craft industry.
Truly, Harris Tweed Hebrides has brought a new twist to an old yarn.
