Harris Tweed is a unique woollen textile that has been hand-woven by islanders off the west coast of Scotland for generations. Worn worldwide- it is cherished both for the clothing made from it and as a fascinating traditional craft. Lara Platman spent a year with the farmers- mill workers- weavers- tailors and designers who are carrying this tradition forward into the twenty-first century and in Harris Tweed: From Land to Street she follows the chain of craftsmen- from the islanders in the Hebrides to the tailors of Savile Row. With an eye for character- colour and light- and an ear for a good story- she has created extraordinary portraits of these living national treasures- complemented by evocative images of the landscapes of Harris- the tweed patterns whose textures and colours seem to emerge from the land- and the use of Harris tweed in the work of fashion designers including Vivienne Westwood- Margaret Howell and Paul Smith. Offering insights into a lifestyle whose continued existence may surprise many- this group portrait is a heartfelt celebration of craftsmanship and a way of life....
