Tha Achd a’ Chlò Hearaich (1993) a’ gleidheadh san lagh gum bi gach meatair de Chlò Hearach a rèir nan inbhean agus a’ leantainn a’ mhìneachaidh reachdail mun Chlò Hearach. Far am faic thu comharra an Òrb, is e dearbhadh a tha sin gu bheil an t-aodach air ullachadh gu h-ùghdarrail mar a tha air a chur an cèill san Achd.

“The Harris Tweed Act (1993) enshrines in law that every metre of Harris Tweed® will conform to exacting standards and adhere to the legal definition of Harris Tweed®. Where you see the Orb mark, you are guaranteed the cloth is authentically produced as outlined by the Act.”
