The New Collection
Mega-shrooms / Summer 2022
The Tweed Project places 100% white Irish linen at the centre of its latest collection, finished with red embossed stitching to add colour and texture to the fabric.

The full range includes a structured bustier, bombers, easy pants and linen polo necks. All styled with an Anthony Peto white felt hat trimmed with turquoise fish netting.
Mega-shrooms was shot on location at Ard Bia, the Burren and features the land’s mini horses; Holly and Mr. Crunch.
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.
