A few years ago, I believe it was after attending The Scottish Trade Fair, Tartan Plus Tweed decided to stock some new, unique Harris Tweed Clocks from a company known as Juniper and Jane. These clocks were unlike anything I had seen before, and knowing the popularity of the Harris Tweed products that were already in our store, I knew these would be a hit with our customers. And I was right.
Recently, the owners here at tartanplustweed.com , Lynn and Mike, took a little trip to the Isle of Harris and Lewis. Since the famous Harris Tweed is so popular (and right on our doorstep really!) they had decided it was time to take a wee trip up north to visit the Harris Tweed Authority to see how this traditional, yet modern tweed is created. Now the story of Harris Tweed can be a bit confusing.
