Handwoven herringbone Harris Tweed from the islands of the Outer Hebrides. The herringbone weave is one of the most popular cloths for jackets and coats and is called herringbone because it resembles the skeleton of a herring fish. The uniquely numbered historical Orb label inside each garment guarantees “the highest quality tweed, dyed, spun and handwoven by islanders of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland in their homes to the laws outlined in the Harris Tweed Act of Parliament.” Since the very first nygardsanna collection we have used Harris Tweed, the “Rolls-Royce” of all wool materials, for our coats and jackets. The material will last a lifetime and will become almost windproof by use in bad weather.
Please be aware that there is no lining made of nature fibre that lasts as long as Harris Tweed. Alternate the way you carry your bag or backpack, as constant wear in the same place can damage the inside lining and create holes. It will always be a good investment to repair or replace broken lining in your Harris Tweed garment.
