About Harris Tweed:  Harris Tweed has a long and storied tradition. It has been created for hundreds of years in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Its beautiful rich tweed fabric must be handwoven with a warp of either 700 or 1,400 individual threads. Harris Tweed fabric is still homemade in remote weaving sheds from pure virgin wool dyed and spun on the Outer Hebridean islands. 

From the Harris Tweed Site: "We work alongside over 140 self-employed handweavers, each one a true artisan and registered with the Harris Tweed Authority. They take hours to meticulously hand-tie new warp threads to the tail ends of the previous warp. This is one of the many processes that must be done before they can start their next weaving project on the treadle loom. Once they begin weaving, each individual warp and weft thread is skillfully woven together under the watchful eye of the weaver."

Studio Tolsta was founded by Scottish designer Catriona Maciver, who set up the studio in a converted loom shed in her ancestral village of Tolsta, on the Isle of Lewis. After experimenting with ceramics and screen-printed textiles, she was drawn to Harris Tweed, a hand-woven, woolen fabric named after the Island’s southern region. Only produced in the Outer Hebrides, it is one of the last surviving testimonies to Scotland’s handloom weaving heritage. Inspired, she began to experiment with the fabric, enjoying the process of combining the traditional with the contemporary. In 2014 she travelled to India to work on a graphic design residency where she then met and married her partner and established a more permanent base in India.
