Who We Are

17th July

This ceangal/connection piece – from island mill Harris Tweed Hebrides – is very close to our heart because it explores the journey that brought us – the Harris Tweed Authority – into being in the first place!

As you know, the Harris Tweed® industry is one of the great surviving textile industries and the Harris Tweed® brand is iconic, synonymous with quality and style.  As custodians, the Harris Tweed Authority has responsibility for protecting the reputation and integrity of Harris Tweed® cloth – not just in Scotland, but worldwide.

We do this big job with a tiny team – plus three inspectors – from a little office (and currently our homes) in the Isle of Lewis.
It is of vital importance to the people of the Outer Hebrides that we ensure that the Harris Tweed® story and standards are upheld everywhere.

And you – our Harris Tweed® family and friends – help us do this job: as fans, by sharing your passion for Harris Tweed® cloth; as makers, by conforming to our brand guidelines; and as customers, by ensuring that you always look for the Harris Tweed® label with its precious Orb mark.
