Tweed Making – the Slow Way!

Its great to see traditional handmade crafts still maintained – although I think they are a tiny bit more up-to-date these days. Slow and gradual change that happens with the rhythm of the work and not forced by capitalist greed.

Harris Tweed – a Romantic History

Harris Tweed – a Romantic History
It has certainly got me hooked. Love the use of natural materials and colours from the landscape. Admire the use of traditional methods and the slow and considered construction that this creates. For more than four years I have been fascinated by Harris Tweed so now I must give into the lure and reflect my addiction in my work!
