Harris Tweed Stock available.
Carloway mill is one of three working Harris Tweed textile mills in the whole world which produces the renowned Harris Tweed fabric.
Harris Tweed is handwoven on traditional single and the newer double width looms by the islanders in their homes in the Outer Hebrides. Finished and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun at Carlway Mill in the Outer Hebrides.
Harris Tweed is then stamped with its distinctive Orb trademark, a safeguard and guarantee that ensures the authenticity and traceability of the Tweed. Harris Tweed is protected by the 1993 Harris Tweed Act of Parliament and overseen by The Harris Tweed Authority who are the Guardians of the Orb.
Situated in the quiet and peaceful village of Garenin, Carloway on the west side of the Isle of Lewis, sheep can safely graze, on their backs are thick woollen fleeces, the first and vital component of an industry which has thrived in the Outer Hebrides on the north-western edge of Scotland for over a hundred years.
The Carloway Mill is proud and privileged to employ its multi-talented workforce, whose artisan skills and creative abilities are of an exceptional high level, which in turn allows the Mill with traditional craft machinery dating as far back as 1892, to produce individualistic and bespoke Harris Tweed cloth of the very highest standards and quality.
The traditional Gaidhlig language can often be heard spoken in the soft island lilt throughout the mill. These combinations add to the flavour of a unique culture, language and heritage of the Tweed industry.
