Harris Tweed is a brand.
True Or False: FALSE
The Harris Tweed authority doesn't manufacture or sell Harris Tweed at all. Rather, its main duty is to preserve the tradition of producing Harris Tweed in the Outer Hebrides, ensuring that all cloth that is certified as "Harris Tweed" is actually manufactured there. The Harris Tweed Act was passed by Parliament in 1993 and declares that all "Harris Tweed" must be purely made and manufactured in the Outer Hebrides in order to be classified as such. Other companies then use and sell that fabric to make everything from sportcoats to Supreme coaches jackets, to Nike sneakers.
