Traditional Harris Tweed Luggage & Storage Trunks


Mossman launch the Uk's first and only Range of Traditional (and very Genuine) Harris Tweed Luggage Trunks

The Harris Tweed Fabric we all know and love.

The inhabitants of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland have woven a beautiful and intricate cloth the world knows simply as Harris Tweed. The islanders of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra produce this luxury cloth entirely by hand and have long been known for the excellence of their weaving. However up until the middle of the nineteenth century, their cloth was used only on their crofts or sold at local markets, but in 1846, Lady Dunmore, widow of the landowner of Harris, the Earl of Dunmore, chose to have their clan tartan replicated by Harris weavers in tweed. The results proved so successful that Lady Dunmore began to devote much time and effort to marketing the tweed to her wealthy friends further afield and as a result of her enthusiastic work sales and trade of the island cloth were soon established with merchants across the country.

This was the beginning of the Harris Tweed industry.

Well established Traditional Storage & Luggage Trunk manufacturer 'Mossman Trunks' are one of the latest companies to introduce this fantastic fabric into a its own unique range of Storage & Luggage Trunks. The blend of Scottish heritage coupled with the Traditional hand made bifurcated construction of the Mossman Trunks have begun a new craze on the High Street.
