About the Maker
Studio Donegal is based in Kilcar, Co Donegal, along the Wild Atlantic Way where a tradition of handweaving and wool textiles has been in existence, dating back to the late 1700’s and earlier, prior to the Industrial Revolution. Textiles provided an important income for rural dwellers in the cottage industry, while local farmers supplemented their income by hand weaving tweed from the rough homespun yarn.
In the late 1980s, amid a struggling Irish textile industry, Kevin Donaghty and his wife Wendy were determined to preserve the tradition of hand weaving in Kilcar, so they took the brave step of taking over Studio Donegal from Connemara Fabrics, its previous owner.
