Traditionally the local wool is washed and coloured with the dyes from local plants scraped from the rocks of the island, each plant yielding its own particular colour. The tweed, being the only fabric in the world to be protected by an act of parliament, was given its famous orb mark, and protected under the custodianship of the Harris Tweed Authority - which lays down strict guidelines for the manufacturing process.
Each cloth must be woven by hand in the homes of the islanders of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra. Every 50 yards is inspected and approved by the authority before it’s stamped with the orb mark.
