The Harris Tweed® Journal

Checks & Creels

17th September

Often seen stacked on harbours and the end of piers throughout the islands, fishing creels boast the perfect combination of aesthetically punchy colour shape and utilitarian practicality – much like this gorgeous Harris Tweed® cloth in a check twill woven for the Carloway Mill on the west side of the Isle of Lewis. From the island, comes the cloth.

See link below to find more Harris Tweed® fabric inspired by the colours of the islands.
