There are also an extensive catalogue of designs to delve into from an array of Plain Twills and traditional Herringbones to more complex Plaids and all combinations thereof.

Furthermore a 1993 Act of Parliament underpins the unique status of Harris Tweed and decrees that genuine Harris Tweed must be made from pure virgin wool which has been dyed and spun on the islands and handwoven at the home of the weaver in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
