Harris Tweed in Production

Harris Tweed Samples in the Studio

As we all know, the top designers already have their fall collections created, photographed and on the runway. So I'm a little behind. I just started work on my upcoming Harris Tweed Fall Collection this past week. I did make my selections, order fabric and receive my tweed from Scotland a while back. I went for two themes, water and earth.  It was so difficult choosing. I wish I could afford to order every color/pattern available. Or at least have a shop nearby so I could purchase whatever inspires me at any given moment.

It's hard to think of wool with temperatures in the 90's here. Even a dip in the pool is not that refreshing right now since the water is luke warm from the sun beating on it all day. But if I want to have a nice selection of bags in the shop by September, work must begin now. So for the next month you will be able to find me in my air-conditioned studio with piles of gorgeous tweed being transformed into handbags.

Summer bags will also be created in small batches. And as always, custom orders are welcome!

New Harris Tweed Purses

Harris Tweed Color Block Purse This week in the studio I did some experimenting combining various Harris Tweed weaves to create a purse. This purse is also a new design measuring at approximately 14" wide, 8.5" high and 2.5" deep. Roomy enough to fit your daily essentials with a stream-lined design to fit comfortably under your arm. Harris Tweed Color Block Purse The purse above is made from Harris Tweed wool in two plain weaves and a barleycorn weave. I love the contrasting colors and textures. Back view of purses above. Harris Tweed Two Tone Bag And last but not least, a basket/tote design, using a lovely blue Harris Tweed plain weave and a Macleod check. All these new bags are now available at the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Wishing everyone a great weekend ahead!
