    I’ve been cloud spotting, and not just while I stare blankly out of a window trying to come up with another interesting way to describe Christmas decoration no.1018…this weather based shopping report says clouds are forming and for once it’s a welcome sight!

    New Harris Tweed furniture collection

    by  • Tuesday, March 24, 2015 • Look what I found • 2 Comments

    Did you know Harris Tweed is the only fabric in the world governed by its own act of Parliament? What does that mean?? Well, you may already know this but I’ve just found out that The Harris Tweed Authority is a legal body that ensures the famous fabric is made in the right way – all tweed has to be made from pure virgin wool, dyed, spun and hand woven by islanders in their own homes in the Outer Hebrides. Once its ticked all those boxes the tweed is then certified with the Harris Tweed Orb Mark.

    I’m a big fan of the British heritage brand but I never really knew the history and traditional methods behind its production!

    The reason why I’m wittering on about Harris Tweed is that one of our favourite online shops, Rose and Grey love it too and has just unveiled a fantastic furniture collection upholstered in three different tweeds…

    Harris Tweed

    You’ll find three different sofa styles, two armchairs and a handsome footstool. This smart range also comes with hardwood legs, feather filled seat cushions, leather piping and beautiful buttons…


    What do you think of this collection? Have you got space for these beauties in your home? If you love this look, click here to view the whole range and if you decide to buy you can feel good knowing you’re supporting one of the oldest, protected British trade marks.

    From top: Grange Harris Tweed sofa in Bracken, £2,150. Manor House Tweed chair in Bracken, £1,050. Manor House Tweed sofa in Bracken, £1,695. Abbey Slate Tweed footstool, £525, all Rose & Grey.
