A Sense of Time
‘Drying the dyed crotal wool.
The smell cannot be photographed.
Note the poor over-worked crofter on the right.’
This seemingly simple image shows us many details that are full of stories, and speaks of the physical graft of the old Harris Tweed® industry. From the baskets and buckets, to the glimpse of a large blackhouse roof in the background, these objects and textures let us dive into the rich history of the island, and the making of Harris Tweed® fabric.
We also love the eloquently phrased comment on the back that makes us feel even more tangibly close to this sunny scene.
