Harris Tweed

Tweed is a fabric that we see all the time on suits, dress pants, but little did I know until recently that it was invented in Scotland. Tweed currently produced in this same area of Scotland is by law known as “Harris Tweed”. It is spun from virgin wool, giving it a nice smooth texture, unlike a lot of contemporary tweed fabrics that feel itchy and rough to the touch.

Handmade Harris Tweed Handbag

It’s not always easy to find in the local department store but there are some very creative pieces of everything ranging from pillows to bags made by artisans on Etsy, and I never thought I could find a Tweed handbag!
