Harris Tweed – a romantic history

Harris Tweed – a romantic history:
I thought I understood the rules for a Harris Tweed, but I missed the fact that the Tweed has also to be handwoven. Or as seen on this video “footwoven” by cycling the loom.

“Handwoven by the islanders at their homes in the Outer Hebrides, finished in the Outer Hebrides, and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides.”
