    Material Description

    Harris Tweed

    Each clothing piece of Harris Tweed is awarded with a authenticity label that wears the "Orb", a imperial orb, because this is the trademark of Harris Tweed. Only those tweed fabrics whose wool has been dyed and spun on the outer Hebridesare allowed to be decorated by the orb. Harris Tweed is probably the most robust and well-known tweed. Due to its high quality processing, it is robust and weather resistant. There are three different weights at Harris Tweed. We only take the middle one, which is also our heaviest.

    What makes wool so special?

    Wool has an unique structure that gives it a natural elasticity, so that the substances returns to its natural form. This prevents wrinkles and folds. It can easily absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp or clammy. The ability of wool to absorb moisture makes it comfortable in both warm and cold conditions. In addition, wool is tear-resistant and the outer skin of the wool fibre is like a protective film that gives the wool fabric an improved robustness.
