Hand bags and AccessoriesGlen Appin of Scotland is well-known for our extensive range of Harris Tweed bags and purses and matching accessories in bright and lively colors.
'For centuries the inhabitants of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, on the islands of Lewis,
Harris, Uist and Barra, have handwoven a beautiful and intricate cloth the world knows
simply as Harris Tweed. In Gaelic it is called ‘Clò-Mòr’ or ‘Big Cloth’.
Originally the handmade cloth was woven by crofters for their own use or sold at local
markets. It was ideal protection against the colder climate of the North of Scotland.
By the end of the 18th century finished handmade cloth was exported to the Scottish
mainland and traded along with other commodities produced by the islanders such as
goat and deer hides.
