Mixing Danish style with Scottish cloth, Norse Projects have released a range of Harris Tweed products for A/W19. The collection, consisting of two outerwear pieces and two accessories is sure to absorb the harshest of cold.
Harris Tweed, as written in the Harris Tweed Act of 1993, is defined as being handwoven by the islanders of the Outer Hebrides. Constructed from pure virgin wool, it is bound geographically to this area located off the west of Scotland. It is dyed and spun there, then woven by hand in the islander’s homes. Harris Tweed is characterised by its warmth, not surprisingly as the island is at the mercy of the unforgiving Atlantic Ocean. But, the fabric allows for breathability, which makes it a sought after material in menswear.
