Kilbeg – Gamble & Gunn Harris Tweed British Made Stone Grey Flat Cap
Completely British made this new addition to our range of flat caps is created from this natural toned fabric echoing the sandy beaches, pebbles, moss and grasses of the hebrides all woven within this Harris Tweed.
Fully lined in fawn satin with a petersham sweat band.
Described beautifully by the Harris Tweed Authority:
“Harris Tweed cloth – Clo Mor (Gaelic for ‘The Big Cloth’) – is the only fabric in the world governed by its own Act of Parliament and the only fabric produced in commercial quantities by truly traditional methods.
Harris Tweed has a rare character and beauty. Hundreds of distinctive patterns have been developed over centuries, each one unique, but unmistakably Harris Tweed.
Unusually, the wool is dyed before being spun, allowing a multitude of colours to be blended into the yarn, creating a cloth of great depth and complexity.
The long, barren archipelago on the far northwest tip of Europe is home to every weaver, dyer, blender, carder, spinner, warper, finisher and inspector of Harris Tweed cloth. No part of the process takes place elsewhere.
As such, the land and people are woven into the very fabric of the cloth, reflecting as it does the colours of the landscapes, the beauty of our vistas and the values of our people.
To the north of the remote string of islands lies the Isle of Lewis – a rugged and bleakly beautiful land of heather and moor, loch and stream – home to the main harbour town of Stornoway and the three Harris Tweed mills.
More mountainous than its northern brother, the Isle of Harris has some of the world’s finest beaches of golden fine shell sand, shallow azure blue seas and a myriad of hidden crofts and villages.
South of this main body a string of smaller islands tails off to the south, including the machair meadows and loch-laden isles of the Uists and beautiful Barra at the furthest tip.
For generations these islands have produced a special cloth…Harris Tweed.”
