Clò Mór – Harris to Paris
Showcasing and celebrating the story of Harris Tweed and its journey from working crofts on our Scottish Isles to the catwalks of Paris and beyond.
21 June 2016 until the end of August 2016
From our own doorstep to the farthest flung corners of the world, Harris Tweed has always found a warm welcome wherever it goes. ‘The Big Cloth’ weaves a fascinating tale that touches on landscape, craft, industry, Scottish tradition and heritage, international relations, contemporary fashion and sheep! This is a story as much about people as it is about products, finding the connections and common bonds made by a single, extraordinary thread.
Attended by the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay, the exhibition opened on 21st June 2016. View the gallery here
