The Tweed Project create handmade, one off pieces that combine beautiful Irish fabrics with modern tailoring for a truly authentic expression of Irish design.The collection is made entirely of Irish fabrics, in Ireland for the world.
The Tweed Project
Bridging the gap between tradition and contemporary design, Triona and Aoibheann bring you The Tweed Project. Both passionate about Irish fabrics, they noticed that despite producing highly sought after Tweed and Linen, no one in Ireland seemed to be using them to suit a modern sensibility, in other words they were looking for pieces that they would like to wear.
So with true DIY spirit, The Tweed Project was created. The Tweed Project is part of The Slow Fashion movement where fabric, time and craft take priority over trends and fast consumer culture. Each piece is made to order and to last you a lifetime.
Eimer Ní x The Tweed Project
Costume designer Eimer Ní Mhaoldomhnaigh brought the timelessness of Irish knitting to the big screen in The Banshees of Inisherin.
Today, Eimer is collaborating with The Tweed Project to recreate a collection of knitwear based on the film’s iconic collared sweater.
“Knowing the ethos of The Tweed Project and how they support local craft, it just seemed like a really good match” says Ní Mhaoldomhnaigh." (Financial Times)
'The Colin' is a beautifully soft 100% wool jumper in four colours. The front panel designed by Eimer is based on a traditional fisherman’s style. The unique collar, sleeves and back are all knit in a stocking stitch with the front also incorporating panels of moss stitch and cross and diamond motifs.
Traditional hand knitting is a slow process and we have a limited amount of local knitters working on this project as it’s a fading art. Allow at least a month for your unique jumper to arrive to you but you can then enjoy a lifetime of coziness together.
