Produced in the Outer Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland since the 19th century, Harris Tweed has come to adorn everything from outerwear footwear to hats, bags, gloves and other accessories over the years, giving them all a rugged yet refined quality few materials can achieve. Made from 100% pure wool, this six-and-a-half-minute video shows the process of transforming the fiber before it is ready to receive the iconic Harris Tweed Orb stamp, first introduced in 1909, thus signifying that the textile has been “hand woven by the islanders at their homes in the Outer Hebrides, finished in the islands of Harris, Lewis, North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist and Barra and their several purtenances (The Outer Hebrides), made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides.”
