About the Book
Luxury coffee-table book / 430 large format pages / 286 full-plate photographs
If you love wild places and Harris Tweed, you’ll adore Ian Lawson’s masterwork ‘From the Land Comes the Cloth.’ A world of elemental beauty brought vividly to life, this gorgeous book weaves a personal journey of discovery into the story of tweed from land to loom. Discover the mystery and magic of the island cloth–a warp and weft not just of spun wool but of interlocked lives, memories, traditions and experiences, all bound together in this wild, ancient, and beautiful place.
With 280 timeless images of landscapes, crofters and tweed, this magnificent artwork offers the viewer an insight into the window of a hidden world that has survived for centuries off the northwest coast of Scotland. A collaboration of two inspirational art forms; both which unmistakably mirror the beauty, and the resilience of their Scottish islands origins – in the Outer Hebrides.
