Our client, Tetrad has had a long standing relationship with Harris Tweed and we explore that in this post!
The famous Harris Tweed cloth has been woven from pure virgin wool in the Outer Hebrides for many generations with the iconic Orb and Maltese Cross trademark being introduced in 1910. Every roll of fabric can be traced by its unique provenance number back to the home-based weavers. The fabric they create together is as interwoven with their shared skills and stories as it is with those of their ancestors. For more than 100 years the skills used to create Harris Tweed have been passed down the generations.
Its enduring appeal, being warm in winter and cool in summer, is used today at the cutting edge of both fashion and design, favoured by Royals and designers alike. Whether light or heavy, Harris Tweed also repels water and resists wear and tear with ease. It was all these qualities and ethos that made Harris Tweed the perfect fabric to be paired with another classically British brand – Tetrad.
Tetrad, based in the heart of Lancashire has been designing and making the finest quality handcrafted sofas and chairs for almost 50 years. Collaborating with this luxury cloth and designing The Classic Harris Tweed Collection provides a stunning showcase of designs combining the expertise of both brands British heritage craftsmanship.
