#25 Harris tweed-inspired gifts
I’ll admit, I had to look up the difference between Harris Tweed and Tartan since to me it’s both a patterned types of fabric.
But Wikipedia taught me that, and please correct me if I’m wrong, Harris Tweed is handwoven tweed cloth by Scottish Islanders, whereas Tartan refers to the patterned cloth that’s typical of Scotland.
Anyway, I just thought that this was worth explaining before we would finish this list of Scottish gifts!
