To this day Harris Tweed is the only brand in the world protected by an Act of Parliament. Only 115 hand loom weavers remain on the Western Isles of Scotland producing this fabric in their own homes, each jacket is entirely woven by hand. By law genuine Harris Tweed must be woven by the islanders of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra using 100% pure new wool. Every 50 metres is stamped with the Harris Tweed Authority ORB. No other fabric in the world can call itself Harris Tweed.
