Harris Tweed & Aran Sweaters

In June 2011 we were visited by Yoshimi Hasegawa and the photographer Yusuke Abe from Japan who were writing a piece for Wingspan, ANA’s in-flight magazine. The article was originally published in the November 2011 issue of the magazine and 32 pages were dedicated to the history of the Aran sweater.

They have now published this in book form along with photographs from their trip to the Outer Hebrides to discover the history of Harris Tweed. We were bowled away by Yoshimi’s research, appreciation and feeling for wool and are delighted to feature in such a beautiful book. We value our Japanese customers and are excited about the opportunity to share the history of Aran sweaters with them.
