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.
Land Lovers is a small autumn /winter collection.
Our models Erin McClure (designer), Harrison Gardner (sustainable builder) and their daughter Inari, born in lockdown, inspired us to create these new pieces. Their commitment to living a pared-back, sustainable life acts as a positive example in these challenging times. The simple pleasure of nurturing creativity through the land, offers growth, hope and scalable self-sufficiency.
In light of the current pandemic, the collection was shot on an iPhone, in The Burren.
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.
