Harris Tweed – re-visioned

Harris Tweed, a regenerative textiles… continuing the legacy!

IMG_5347.jpg

Aiming for 0% waste from discarded Harris Tweed jackets that are deconstructed, sorted, washed, felted and embellished…  the outcome  provides cloth for breathing new life into a legacy fabric and the creation of beautiful, functional pieces.

All parts of the jackets are salvaged… cloth, lining, buttons, labels all used in the creation of unique art pieces, even the interfacing was used for compost… aiming for 0% waste and continuing the legacy.

Harris Tweed is a legacy cloth from the Outer Hebrides of Scotland… a tweed cloth that is handwoven by islanders at their homes in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, finished in the Outer Hebrides, and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides. This definition, quality standards and protection of the Harris Tweed name are enshrined in the Harris Tweed Act 1993 and overseen by the Harris Tweed Authority.
