by Mourne Textiles

Click to zoom

Handwoven, in Northern Ireland, on Mourne's Kentish loom; the Shaggy Dog cushion is fabricated using traditionally spun Donegal yarns and some experimental techniques. A playful and cosy cushion with a very unusual and exciting weave. The cloth used in this cushion was originally designed and produced for Irish fashion designer Sybil Connolly and was first used in her 1956 A\W collection receiving much acclaim.

Produced by Mourne Textiles, a family-run workshop situated at the foot of the idyllic Mourne mountains. Founded in 1954 by the legendary Gerd Hay-Edie, whose many achievements include advisor to the Norwegian Home Industries, producing the very first double-weave furniture fabrics used by Gordon Russell, & a long-standing relationship with designer Robin Day and Hille & Co. Now in its third generation Mourne has a reputation as exceptional weavers. The combination of Grandmother, Mother and Son as well as a passion for weaving has created a global venture with products of incredible quality and integrity that will last a lifetime. We believe they are one of the finest producers in Ireland, exceptional crafts people with a marvelous modern aesthetic and design-led approach.
