Keep up to date with the best of today’s Irish makers working in linen and wool…
1 The clean and simple lines of the 31 Chapel Lane Instagram account will have you zen in no time. We love their off-centre detail shots of the architecture we take for granted daily, not to mention that stunning linen!
2 Follow in Jamie Oliver’s shoes and show Mourne Textiles some Insta love. Arguably the most established yet endlessly innovative family handloom mill on this island.
3 The Tweed Project is a perfect marriage of traditional textiles and trendy design. The brainchild of Triona Lillis (owner of ASt?r) and Aoibheann MacNamara (of Ard Bia fame) this atelier is one to keep an eye on. The blanket coat is a perfect throw for a bed or sofa and one you can take with you when you leave – excellent!
4 Swipe your way through the wacky world of Clare-Anne O’Brien. A graduate of the Royal College of Art in London, she is a woollen wonder woman who is not afraid of strong colour, so do yourself a favour and give her a follow to brighten up your feed!
5 Named after a small coastal townland in Co. Wicklow, Bonagrew takes its inspiration from the colours and textures of its surroundings. We take a slight departure from all things interiors here, but as we’re gearing up for Father’s Day, you’ll thank us for pointing you in the direction of these uber-cool handmade ties and bow-ties!
