Across the waters from Scotland, beyond the Isle of Skye lies the barren, rocky Isle of Harris. One hundred and fifty years ago, the islanders created a unique cloth, a tweed entirely woven by hand that was to become famous, known simply as it is today as ‘Harris Tweed’.

To this day, Harris Tweed is the only fabric in the world protected by an Act of Parliament. This states that it must be made ‘with 100% pure virgin wool, dyed, spun and finished in the Outer Hebrides and woven by hand by the Islanders in their homes on the Islands of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra’.

The unique Act is policed by the Harris Tweed Authority, who monitors all fabric on a daily basis. Every 50 metres of fabric is inspected and approved before being stamped by hand with the Orb trademark.

No other fabric can call itself Harris Tweed.
