In His Own Words (FT Interview 2014)

These photos were taken on my first trip to Luskentyre in July 2011 to choose a tweed for a jacket.
He started with an already woven green based pattern, trying different coloured strands of wool
against it to find the best effects to personalise the pattern and he ended up weaving
a most beautiful bolt of cloth to make what is now my favourite jacket.

I returned in 2013 Island hopping from Bara to Lewis and stopped at Luskentyre to show D.J. the finished jacket.
