Our range of accessories are created from a unique, contemporary Harris Tweed, handwoven especially for us inspired by the Scottish landscape and seasons. Designed and handmade in Scotland.

The Cloth

 

The rare character and beauty of our unique range of Harris Tweed is attributable to the fact that it is produced using truly traditional methods.

 

Woven by hand at Adabrock, on an old Hattersley loom, called Agnes...... from where you can see the ocean, the skies and the ancient cliffs!

 

Hundreds of distinctive patterns have developed over the centuries, each unique but unmistakably Harris Tweed with its characteristic subtle designs in complex natural shades.

 

Unusually the wool is dyed before being spun, allowing blending of multitude of colours into the yarn. With each thread containing a myriad of different colours, a cloth of great depth and complexity is produced. Just look closely to reveal the true nature of the Harris Tweed.

 

Harris Tweed is also adventurous enough to be woven into contemporary and unconventional patterns and the Harris Tweed Producers continue to explore possibilities with clients with each new season. Ours is a contemporary Herringbone, currently in nine shades, all handwoven by Adabrock Weaving Company.

 

Soft, tactile, breathable, warm, colourful, sustainable, adaptable…the old image of coarse, scratchy, dour tweed simply does not exist these days.

 

While still retaining its heritage of practicality and longevity, the Harris Tweed of today extols all the qualities and virtues of a truly luxury 21st century fabric.

 

Design

 

Driven by a love of textiles and design, Amy Britton is an independent Scottish manufacturer of contemporary Harris Tweed accessories.

 

Designed and Made in Scotland, our range of products are created from a unique, contemporary Harris Tweed. Handwoven especially for us in The Outer Hebrides of Scotland; inspired by the Scottish landscape and seasons.

 

Handmade by our team in Scotland, all products are designed and made to contain something.

 

Starting with the smallest product, this small zip purse can be used to carry coins, headphones, or small cosmetic items. The product range has several purse sizes right through to larger cosmetic and makeup bags.

 

There are also covers for the larger gadgets that we cannot seem to get through life without these days.

 

We have so many gadgets with us these days; this is where the concept behind the accessories range originates, with all items designed 'to carry'. All items were designed with a specific use in mind, or designed because someone has asked for them, all have evolved into the range we have now.
