The Tweed Project, based in Galway, Ireland, brings together traditional Irish materials with cutting-edge contemporary design. This sumptuous, heavyweight blanket is flecked through with light-catching metallic bouclé wool, which adds a glamorous shimmer. Thick tasseled fringes are hand stitched on for greater softness and texture.
“Our fabrics have a very strong root in nature: you can literally see that the linen and tweed is part of the land,” says Triona. “The colours or flecks in the tweed are the colours of nature and reflect what is available such as gorse or blackberry. It is a very natural, organic process and is very much part of the ‘slow fashion’ movement.”Visit Designer Page
