Governed by the Harris Tweed Act, enacted by British Parliament in 1993, the handspun fabric is view with an importance as a national heritage. To be officiated by the Harris Tweed Orb logo, the fabric must be from the 4 islands, or Outer Hebrides, on western outcrop of Scotland. Handspun, handwoven, and organically dyed, the process involved only materials found on the isles. The labor intensive method and its weatherproof characteristics made the Harris Tweed a must have luxury for the unpredictable British climate. Unfortunately, it is also one most copied fabric.
For its Desert Boots’ 60th anniversary, Clark Originals, will introduce a limited collection marking each of the 6 decades. First was the 1990s and revitalization of Brit Pop in the world of music. Next is this collaboration with the Harris Tweed Authority, in symbolizing the popularity of the fabric in the 1950s. Packaged in a specially designed shoe box along with a Desert Boots key ring in matching design. Available for a limited time only at selected Clark Originals retailers, including End Clothing of England.
