Harris Tweed Jacket at Road Rags

Our Stokey Harris Tweed Jacket has been very well received this year, featured in two different Herringbone and overcheck colours, 'Heather' and 'Heath'. This has inspired us to introduce a new colour into the range - 'Skye'.

Skye has a delicate plain mottle, reflecting the ever changing hues and blues in the sea and skies of the Hebrides. This will be available in the coming days! (Please note - the new Stokey 'Skye' Jacket is now available!)

As always we have paid particular attention to the details and used only the highest level of craftsmanship available to us here in Great Britain.

Hand chosen buttons add character and, along with the velvet collar and rear vent trim, introduces a contemporary finish to a classic cut. Contrasting Jacquard lining compliments the Harris Tweed and gives smooth mobility with a luxurious feel.

This can be seen on the 'Heather' below.

What Is Harris Tweed?

Harris Tweed is 100% pure new wool from its home in the wilds of the Hebrides.

The wool is dyed, blended, carded, spun, warped and woven creating a robust material that is going to stand the test of time.

Harris Tweed has recently made a huge impact on the fashion catwalks of the world, it is ecologically sound and has a low impact on the environment. It is biodegradable, non-allergenic and is energy efficient in its manufacture.

The artisans that weave it by hand use only treadle powered looms to create their art.

Harris Tweed - From A Landscape That Inspires

The amazing landscapes of the Outer Hebrides and the Isle of Harris are nestled off the West coast of Scotland. 

Isle of Harris for Tweed

It is these Isles that host the flocks of sheep that wander the beaches and wild terrain of the Islands.

Harris Tweed colours

The colours of the land - think mosses, heathers, mountains, skies and sea - are beautifully blended into the yarns themselves before being woven individually in the Island homes of each weaver. This makes each Tweed individual, unique and exceptionally beautiful.
