Our Harris Tweed fabrics and accessories are very much in demand this year : across the world, it seems, it’s trending tweeds – and certainly genuine authenticated Harris Tweed, and especially bought in the Outer Hebrides from the makers.
Recently, a guest staying at one of our two holiday cottages bought one our largest Harris Tweed cushions ; but on returning home was so pleased with how the cushion complemented her furnishings, she contacted us to request another cushion. She didn’t want identical cushions – she was looking for designs that would contrast with eachother, yet all would settle in well in her home.
I set out most of our current stock of cushions along the ‘man bench’ – by porch of the Hebridean Woolshed garden shop, and took pairs of photos of two selections, one photo showing the obverse of all cushions, the other photo showing the reverse.
In her reply, she chose two cushions (actually, just the covers – for more economic delivery) , and very soon they were packed up and handed over to J to send off at the Eriskay Post Office the next time he went to the croft.
