    Thank you, it was quite a task but I thought it would make a good reference point for Harris Tweed fabric patterns through the years... [​IMG]

    Thanks, that's awesome, it's just a shame the variety has been so viciously cut back in recent years.

    I think you may have misunderstood : I am not boasting, I do not sell Harris Tweed fabric and I have never claimed to do so :confused: I am choosing to share a collection of images I have taken some of the fantastic Harris Tweed fabrics that I deal with. As I sell so many heritage / vintage Harris Tweed jackets I am in a priveleged position as so many of the cloths are no longer produced, I wish to share that with others who are intersted in this wonderful cloth, my choice :)

    Just a quick note, there are now 4 parts to the Harris Tweed fabric pattern image reference collection. I have added the links to each one to make them easier to find.
    There are over 300 images of different Harris Tweed fabrics in total and I shall be adding many more very soon. :)

    Yes it is a real shame, we currently have over 300 different Harris Tweed wool jackets and the wonderful variety still amazes me : )
