On 23 November 2017 BBC News reported:
Uniquely made in the Scotland's remote Outer Hebrides, Harris Tweed is beloved by fashionistas from across the globe, from Vivienne Westwood to Manolo Blahnik. Using local wool and natural dyes, islanders had been weaving the fabric for their own use for centuries, but it wasn't until the mid-1800s that Harris Tweed became a sought-after textile elsewhere, thanks to the marketing efforts of Lady Dunmore, whose late husband had owned the Isle of Harris. Now it's the only cloth in the world with a protected provenance, governed by a British Act of Parliament that ensures Harris Tweed must be 'handwoven by the islanders at their homes in the Outer Hebrides, finished in the Outer Hebrides, and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides'. Despite the cyclical nature of the fashion industry, Harris Tweed is -- and has long been -- a fabric in demand.
