Nine different Harris Tweed weaves were used to create this patchwork foldover clutch.

Harris Tweed Tote Bags


New in the shop! These tote bags are made from exclusive Harris Tweed wool imported from the Isle of Harris, Scotland. Harris Tweed is a luxury cloth handwoven by the islanders in their homes on the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, using local wool. 


This bag is certified with an authentic Harris Tweed label.





A glimpse into the studio earlier today.


This year I was not able to place an order for new Harris Tweed wool. I missed perusing all my samples and making my selections. Luckily I still have several meters of various solids and check weaves in stock for my fall collection so stay tuned!

Update 8/28/13 : I was able to purchase a few meters of single width Harris Tweed! I'll have a little more to work with in the studio very soon.
