Originally Harris Tweed was woven by farmers for familial use, as it was ideal for protection against the coastal climates of Norther Scotland. The quality became so well regarded that surplus was often used for barter, eventually becoming a form of currency for the islanders. It's an all-natural product that takes years of training to produce and can only be handwoven by the islanders in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
