    Studio Donegal began its life as an idealistic project to preserve the tradition of hand weaving, when machine weaving was introduced across the tweed industry in Ireland in the 1960s, hand weaving went into rapid decline. Initially engaged as manager, Kevin Donaghy later bought out the operation from parent company Connemara Fabrics. It has been passed on to a second generation of the Donaghy family, Tristan and his wife Anne now run the business, adhering to the original dream of protecting a traditional heritage craft.

    All Studio Donegal products are 100% hand woven, 100% hand made, 100% made in Ireland. Using only 100% wool, a fantastically sustainable material, sourced mostly in the form of yarn spun by Donegal Yarns, located  in the village of Kilcar, Ireland.
