Woven from the county Donegal these tweed items are sought after far and wide for its sturdiness and designs. Situated in the picturesque village of Kilcar, near the stunning cliff of Slieve League on the Wild Atlantic Way, Studio Donegal has been handweaving Donegal Tweed since 1979. Donegal has for centuries been producing tweed from local materials in the making of caps, suits and vests. Towards the end of the eighteenth century, The Royal Linen Manufacturers of Ulster distributed approximately six thousand flax spinning wheels and sixty looms for weaving to various Donegal homesteads. These machines helped establish the homespun tweed industry in nineteenth-century Donegal.
