Harris Tweed — A Journey to the Outer Hebrides

The Isle of Harris is home to Calum Buchanan, a weaver for Harris Tweed. What makes the cloth so unique is its geographically-bound associations with the region. As stated by the Harris Tweed Act of 1993 official Harris Tweed is defined as being “handwoven by the islanders at their homes in the Outer Hebrides, finished in the Outer Hebrides, and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides.”
