Harris Tweed is a cloth that has been hand-woven by native Islanders in their homes in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, finished in the Outer Hebrides, and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides. Harris Tweed is the true definition of cottage industry trade.  Prince of Scots is proud to our a complete collection of Harris Tweed Gifts which are prefect to celebrate Scottish Culture and Style.

The iconic fabric has been featured on the fashion runways by Chanel and Ralph Lauren. Harris Tweed is protected by the Harris Tweed Act 1993, which strictly outlines the conditions in which the cloth can genuinely be manufactured. For centuries the islanders of the Outer Hebrides of Lewis and Harris, the Uists, Benbecula and Barra have woven cloth by hand. The natives call the fabric Clò Mór  which is the original Gaelic which means the ‘The big cloth’.
