|A merger of two beautiful products, traditional luxury Scottish Harris Tweed cloth and sumptuous Italian leather. Add the styling of Italian designers Bonfanti and you have a marriage made in heaven.|
Harris Tweed cloth is made using traditional techniques in the Outer Hebrides and is today as authentic and natural as it has always been. Woven by hand by local artisans, it is a million miles away from mass production.Protected by law, Harris Tweed must be hand woven by an islander in the Outer Hebrides and made from pure virgin wool that has been dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides. Tweed that does not adhere to these conditions and specifications cannot be labelled Harris Tweed.
Bonfanti a family business established over 60 years ago in 1945 is based near Milan, Italy. Founded by husband and wife Ermogene and Anita they started as a small artisan workshop and have grown and evolved into a World renowned brand. In recent years Anna Bonfanti has embraced the use of textiles with Italian leather into their fashion collections. Harris Tweed is a particularly good material not only is it beautiful, it is hard wearing and also has the added benefit of a protective teflon coat that helps to prevent staining.
