Remodelista London Market Spotlight: Mourne Textiles

November 11, 2014

Who: Mourne Textiles is a third-generation run workshop Northern Ireland, set up in 1954 by the pioneering textile designer and weaver Gerd Hay-Edie. The studio is currently run by Gerd’s grandson, Mario Sierra, and his mother, master weaver Karen Hay-Edie.

What: Hand-loomed woven rugs, throws, cushions, and placemats made from locally spun yarn.

Insider scoop: Mario will be joining us this Saturday at the Remodelista London Market, where he’ll be showcasing new cushions from the forthcoming Mourne Monochrome collection featuring black and white weaves. He’ll also be taking preorders for a new line of baby and children’s blankets, and offering Remodelista Market shoppers a 15 percent discount on goods for sale on the day.

Above: A selection of Blankets and Throws will be available from £195 ($309).

Above: The Shaggy Dog Cushion (L) and the Mended Tweed Cushion (R) are made from custom-spun merino wool from Donegal yarn and are both revived designs created by Gerd Hay-Edie. The Hillie and Co. sofa is covered in a Gerd Hay-Edie fabric and was commissioned by the iconic furniture designer Robin Day. (Side note: I grew up with this very sofa in this fabric.)

Above: Handwoven Placemats; £85 ($134.68) for a set of four.
