From the remote islands of the Outer Hebrides, Harris Tweed is exported globally to over 50 countries. From traditional markets in Europe, North America and the Far East to the emerging BRIC nations of Brazil, Russia, India and China, Harris Tweed finds its way to every corner of the planet.
Traditional men’s jackets, cutting-edge catwalk couture, stylish street sneakers, five star interiors, bespoke suits, unique crafts…the use of Harris Tweed is endless and is shipped to fashion houses, independent designers, multinational companies, small clothing labels and famous tailors, to provide a foil for their creative endeavours, all over the world.
All this from the crofts and mills of our tiny Scottish islands on the edge of the Atlantic.
Global counterfeiting is big business but with serious implications for fragile local economies. As such we are committed to the legal protection of Harris Tweed as a vital means of livelihood for over 250 craftsmen and women weaving and working in the mills of the Outer Hebrides.
Harris Tweed and the Orb Mark are internationally recognised and registered trademarks, protected in over 30 countries worldwide and we will never hesitate to legally challenge their misuse.
Please help us continue to uphold the values of quality, beauty, skill and craft embodied in the trademark by contacting us with any information on Harris Tweed counterfeiting.
