Harris Tweed is a unique woollen textile hand-woven by generations of
islanders in the Outer Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland. Worn
worldwide, and much used by fashion designers including Vivienne
Westwood and Paul Smith, it is increasingly cherished, both for the
garments made from it and as a fascinating traditional craft. This book
is a group portrait of the craftsmen who work with Harris Tweed, from
the Hebrides to London's Saville Row.
