The high-profile launch of the Harris Tweed Hebrides Ryder Cup collection at Gleneagles last week has attracted world-wide interest.

Harris Tweed Hebrides have teamed up with Edinburgh retailer Walker Slater to produce an exclusive 25-item collection which will be sold through the Ryder Cup official web-site and a small number of approved outlets as well as in the Ryder Cup Village when the event is held at Gleneagles in September.

Brian Wilson, chairman of Harris Tweed Hebrides, said: “These great images from the launch have gone round the world and there has been a tremendous amount of interest in response. It is an excellent event to be associated with and will further enhance the status of Harris Tweed.”

The company is also supplying fabric for the presentation uniforms at this summer’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Mr Wilson said: “We are delighted to be official suppliers to both these great events and the island economy can only benefit from the international exposure which will be achieved”.
