The Harris Tweed® Journal

Herringbone Waves

14th March

As we come to the end of a season of high winds, we’ve taken inspiration from the drama of a strong Atlantic swell. Its powerful presence fills the senses, sea spray flying high among the calling gulls as it drums against the cliffs. There’s energy too in the strong lines of the rocks and the textures of the water that are picked up in this flowing herringbone fabric.
From the land, comes the cloth.

This featured Harris Tweed® fabric was handwoven for island mill Harris Tweed by Kenneth Mackenzie Ltd, visit our website for more details
