Harris Tweed Textiles sponsored a US fashion show
Operators of a Harris Tweed mill said it had doubled shifts and intended to recruit more staff to meet demand for the fabric.
The announcement, from Harris Tweed Textiles at Carloway on Lewis, follows the news of planned cuts at the Kenneth Mackenzie mill in Stornoway.
Its owner Brian Haggas said 36 posts would go to help the industry survive.
However, Alan Bain, a major investor in the Carloway mill, said there was still a demand for the fabric.
Harris Tweed Textiles said it increased its workforce to 22 in the last three years and was set to recruit a further six to eight workers.
The company said the rise in demand could be attributed in part to its sponsorship of a fashion show in New York, where designers were asked to re-invent Harris Tweed.
Mr Bain said: "Our strategy was to enhance the production capabilities of our mill to meet the anticipated demand for Harris Tweed coming from traditional sources, as well as the exciting new markets we identified."
