Harris Tweed - chaos to order

The cottage industry that created Harris Tweed has seen a revival in recent years. It is a beautiful, hardwaring cloth.

The traditional cloth is made up of thousands of strands that come together to create the heriingbone pattern.

The image is a section of material showing the strands after weaving on a loom. Each strand had to be individually tied in the correct (often by the matriach of the cottage).

I love the way the chaotic becomes order
