Discover Harris Tweed Accessories

If your wardrobe is feeling a bit flat, adding an accessory with a lovely print and a vibrant history will do the trick. A Harris Tweed bag may be all you need to bring your next look together.


You may think of tweed and immediately think of a jacket but tweed is a versatile fabric and can be used in a variety of ways. One unexpected and delightful use is in accessories! A tweed purse or wallet is a great and unique way to utilize the rich and textured fabric in your daily life.


What Is Harris Tweed?


Harris Tweed is a name steeped in Scottish history. The fabric was created in Scotland and can only be crafted there. The highly regulated cloth is spun, dyed, blended and woven entirely by artisans in the Outer Hebrides. The cloth is used by dozens of high-end brands and exported to more than 50 countries with the market expanding every year.


Bags and Purses

 

Why go for a boring plain leather bag when you can opt for something with a little more personality? Harris Tweed fabric adds more life to classic bag shapes. 


Take the classic bowling bag purse, a popular style that people love. The Harris Tweed pink square fabric makes it fun and bright and takes the style up a notch from something simple and basic. You can opt for something a little more colorful with a rainbow check or a little more subdued with a classic blue herringbone.


Another classic style is the messenger bag (that is big enough to hold a 17" laptop) and the mini messenger bag. This crossbody style is popular with both men and women, depending on the color and size. Add a little Harris Tweed to the simple shape and you have something fun and interesting! The saffron tartan mini messenger bag is fun and vibrant for someone looking to add some color into their wardrobe. If you just love tartan and a more subtle color go for the blue/brown check messenger bag.


Small Accessories

If you are in the market for a new wallet, cosmetic bag or wash bag, think of it as another opportunity to add some Harris Tweed into your life! Many of the smaller Harris Tweed accessories come in matching fabric to the larger bags so you can get an entire matching set if you choose.


Wallets are a popular choice and come in several different sizes depending on your preference. You can choose from an envelope wallet, cardholder wallet, bifold wallet or zip purse. Pick a bright color or a classic shade in a basic herringbone pattern.
