A blog's a blog for a' that

As the famous quote goes...

“All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances” so mused Bill Shakespeare but if he was around today he may replace stage with catwalk.

The fashion show circuit of catwalk shows and beautifully styled instillations now holds interest way beyond the fashion fabric and textiles industry. In addition the entourage of bloggers (genuine) and wannabes generate endless on-line photos and copy that can usually be described as the good, the bad and the ugly.

This week was all about the good. The photo below (left) shows our fabric on the Parisian catwalk for Maison Martin Margiela. The image on the right is of respected fashion buyer, blogger and stylist Kimair from her blog on the infinite versatility of a good Harris Tweed jacket.

What is an unquestionable positive aspect of these modern digital times is the easy access to information that allows us to ‘open the croft gate’ on the Harris Tweed industry.

As the nights get longer and the weavers and mill head towards their busiest time of the year we will be bringing you more stories from The Hebrides; just recently voted the best in Europe. What Bill Shakespeare or Rabbie Burns would have made of the beauty of our Islands we will never know but we have plenty of artists, artisans and plain old good characters to tell the story.
