A Brief History of Studio Donegal:
For over 100 years a hand-weaving mill has existed in the Irish village of Kilcar. In the 1960s, the mill made the shift from hand weaving to modern machinery with the hope of becoming more competitive. It was soon apparent, however, that something crucial had been lost.
A decade later, Studio Donegal was founded by Kevin and Wendy Donaghy with the goal of maintaining and preserving the tradition of hand-weaving in Southwest Donegal. Today, thirty years later, the Studio enjoys its second generation of family ownership.
Tristan Donaghy has put together a small team of people with great skills and experience who are dedicated to making an ongoing success of the business and keeping the crafts and skills involved alive.
