The fabric of Irish fashion has a special place in our landscape — both physical and cultural.
Meet three textile tastemakers putting a new spin on a traditional yarn.
THE TWEED PROJECT:
(Triona Lillis of Astór and Aoibheann MacNamara) creates handmade, one-off pieces that combine Irish fabrics with clean, contemporary tailoring. Each piece is made to order and made to last a lifetime. www.thetweedproject.com
Herringbone scarves are deliciously capacious and handwoven in Ireland. Made with 100% wool and taking six weeks to complete, their generous size elevates heritage to high fashion. https://stable.ie
ELAINE MADIGAN CASHMERE:
Draws inspiration from the Irish personality and countryside. The most loved things about home are reflected in the gentle palette, elegant lines and celebrated warmth of her everyday luxuries. www.elainemadigancashmere.com
