The Harris Tweed® Journal

A Visit from Norway

26th October

It was our real pleasure to meet last week with Norwegian Ambassador, Wegger Christian Strømmen and his wife Cecilie. They were both hugely knowledgeable about textiles and most encouraging of our plans to further promote Harris Tweed® in Scandinavia next year. The Ambassador Strømmen even tried his hand at the double-width loom!

“… The Ambassador and his wife also visited Harris Distillery, met Harris Tweed Authority chief executive, Lorna MacAulay, and visited the Harris Tweed Hebrides shop. “I come from a long line of textile merchants,” he said. “I am the first in six generations not to be in that business. Harris Tweed® has a fantastic status in Norway, for sure.”
