I created this series as part of a larger project for Caledonian MacBrayne for
their annual brochure “Go Explore “.
Harris Tweed Hebrides is an award winning company based in Shawbost on the Isle of Lewis, they have
supplied for Alexander McQueen, YSL, Chanel and Vivienne Westwood..to name just a few…
I was extremely lucky to be allowed behind the scenes to see the process of how the world famous
fabric is created and meet the artisans whose skills have been passed down through the generations.
The company, founded in 2007 when Harris Tweed was at a low ebb, is generally credited with having
revitalised the industry and taken the famous fabric into the front-line of 21st century fashion and design.
Thank you so much to the staff for making my (unfortunatly far too short!) visit so informative and enjoyable. Support this amazing company!
