The Harris Tweed® Journal

A Match of Detail

7th January

Behind the cloth today, a wonderful portrait of a retired Harris Tweed® weaver. Johnny (Seonaidh) Buchanan comes from Bhaltos in Uig, Isle of Lewis. We love the layer of detail from houndstooth cap to checked shirt to ribbed and bobbly jumper. Sometimes texture and pattern take precedent over glorious colour!

The featured Harris Tweed® fabric was handwoven by independent producer The Weaving Shed: Crossbost Harris Tweed & Western Isles Designs. See our website for more details.
