Last Buy – Harris Tweed – From land to Street


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)
