HARRIS TWEED – CLO MOR
Since 1999, I have been working with this beautiful cloth.
As a child holidaying on a working croft in the Outer Hebrides I watched the sheep shearing and visited the weavers in their cottages.
Did you know that Harris tweed is still woven on a treadle loom at the weaver’s home? No electricity is allowed to power the looms, it is all man (or woman) power! It is protected by parliament more>>> and yes, Harris tweed is expensive – a luxury cloth and the world’s only commercially produced handwoven tweed. So when you think about the true cost of producing it, and the heritage woven into every inch, retailing at over £40 per metre length really isn’t very much at all.

Over the years I have made some beautiful pieces in Harris tweed, including
Blankets and cushions here>>>
