Harris Tweed comes to Huddersfield

We all receive calls out of the blue that lead to nothing, however when Gavin, our Sales Manager, received one such call it excited him.

The call was from a director of Harris Tweed, and it led to Huddersfield Cloth Ltd. being appointed as the exclusive distributor of cut lenghs for the iconic Scottish tweed world wide.

Harris Tweed is defined as 100% virgin wool cloth, hand woven at the home of the weaver in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland from yarn manufactured on the island. The cloth must also be finished on the island. All cloth meeting this defination is authenticated with the Orb Certification Mark. A suite of woven labels and swing tags will be available to customers buying the original cloth.

Harris Tweed is the only cloth protected by an Act Of Parliament: The 1993 United Kingdom Harris Tweed Act of Parliament. Which establishes the Harris Tweed Authority (HTA) as the sole inspection and certification authority for Harris Tweed.

We are delighted to have been chosen, and look forward to supplying our customers, new and old, with two of the worlds best cloths. Huddersfield Cloth and Harris Tweed.

We are taking orders for Harris Tweed from the 21st October 2015, and the cloth will be available from the 28th October.
