Harris Tweed Cushions
A Brief History
The definition of Harris Tweed is enshrined in law, with clear legal criteria laid down in the Harris Tweed Act 1993. To meet the legally prescribed definition of Harris Tweed, tweed has to adhere to strict specification. This sets out that to be considered Harris Tweed, a tweed must be "Hand woven by islanders at their home in the Outer Hebrides and made from pure virgin wood dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides".
Tweed that does not comply with these conditions is not Harris Tweed and can not be marked as such. The Orb Mark, Britian's oldest surviving Certification Mark, is managed and protected by the Harris Tweed Authority.
We only use genuine Harris Tweed to make this range of cushions. The back of each cushion is made from a complementary fabric. We display the authentication label on the bottom right hand corner of each cushion. If you wish to have this on the back, please contact us at the time of purchase, quoting your order number. These cushions are dry clean only.
