I bought this book around Christmas time but haven’t got around to finishing it until recently. It’s a great read and well worth investing in if you have even a passing interest in fabrics or clothes.
It’s also beautifully shot, no surprise as it’s by photographer Lara Platman, covering a seven month project to document the industry and its people. Harris Tweed recently celebrated its 100th Anniversary and has enjoyed quite a resurgence in recent years with the ‘heritage’ trend in menswear still going strong (love the suit the old boy’s wearing in the pic above)
