The Scotland women's football team will be wearing Harris Tweed at the FIFA Women's World Cup this summer.

Edinburgh-based tailoring firm Walker Slater will supply the squad with Harris Tweed Hebrides jackets to wear as they fly out to France in June.

The announcement sees Walker Slater continue their role as an official licensee of the Scottish FA, which has seen them exclusively retail the Scotland National Team Harris Tweed, designed and produced in Shawbost, since 2015.
 
Walker Slater will now supply the players with the Iona jacket, in a traditional style designed by Harris Tweed Hebrides to combine the dark blue of the Scotland jersey with the sky blue from the Saltire to give a subtle, modern tweed.
 
The deep navy backdrop is complemented with sky blue broken stripes, while cuff button detail appears in the form of bright red stitching.
 
Harris Tweed Hebrides Creative Director, Mark Hogarth, said: "We are proud to partner with Walker Slater in providing the official uniform for the Scotland Women’s National Team’s historic journey to France.
 
“The team can now display great Scottish style both on and off the park and we hope it will help propel Shelley Kerr and her squad to great achievements at the World Cup.”
 
Scottish FA Commercial Director Chris Rawlings said: “Having companies with such a strong Scottish heritage as Walker Slater and Harris Tweed Hebrides supporting the Scotland Women’s National Team as they get ready for the World Cup is a massive compliment...
 
“The success of the team has been amazing and to see them depart fully kitted out in the official Scotland National Team Harris Tweed will be a proud moment for them.”
