At The Carloway Mill

The smallest of the three mills on Lewis has been re-branded. The former Harris Tweed Textiles, or HTT, is now styling itself The Carloway Mill, taking its name from a nearby village. It is a little gem of a production unit.

  

Textile industry veteran Malcolm Campbell is acting as a consultant to the business as well as developing his own tweed line under The Callanish brand. From clothing to accessories, to luggage and furniture, Harris Tweed is a versatile cloth and modern finishing techniques means it does not have to be the heavy, hairy cloth that too many people think of when they think of Harris Tweed.

  

One development form Malcolm Campbell is the revival of the Murray of Atholl tartan, which effectively launched ther Harris Tweed industry in the mid-19th century. His brand takes its name from the Druidic standing stones at Callanish on the Isle of Lewis.
