Mourne Textiles’ luxurious narrow and wide scarves blend the soft yarns of merino wool, silk and cashmere. The colours and textures draw inspiration from the landscape surrounding the weaving workshop at the foothills of the Mourne Mountains. Gentle muted tones mix with flecks and flashes of complimentary and contrasting colours to reflect the granite outcrops, grazing sheep, clusters of heather or bursts of gorse that speckle the scenery.
Each piece is unique, meticulously and individually handwoven on vintage shuttle looms that are almost a century old. This technique creates a rich weave full of character and a hard-wearing woven selvedge, or self-finished edge.
Mourne Textiles is a third-generation, family-run design-led manufacturer of handwoven scarves and homewares based in County Down, Northern Ireland.
