Vintage Green Donegal Plaid Tweed Irish Wool with Irish Linen Cushion Pillow

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Custom-made luxury cushion (pillow) created from an exquisite tweed in a dark forest green shade with subtle plaid (also known as tartan, checker or checkered) pattern. The beautifully textured high quality heavy weight fabric is from an unused vintage roll.

Donegal tweed is a handwoven 100% natural tweed wool manufactured in County Donegal, Ireland. Donegal has producing tweed from local materials for centuries. Sheep thrive in the hills and bogs of Donegal, and indigenous plants such as blackberries, fuchsia, gorse (whins), and moss provide dyes. It has an appearance as varied and attractive as an Irish landscape.

It is backed in new 100% pure Irish linen, the aristocrat of textiles and certified by the Irish Linen Guild, filled with new plush duck feather insert and a concealed zip. The traditional oatmeal color is a combination of the unbleached raw colour of the natural flax plant on the weft intertwined with pristine white on the warp, resulting in a beautiful dabbled effect.

Donegal Tweed in particular is a highly sought after cloth, world renowned, just like the linen. A combination of two natural fibres, both wool and linen represent the fabrics of Ireland’s heritage and history. It is a contemporary cushion (pillow) constructed with precious vintage elements.

Would look excellent with a traditional or contemporary interior, whether a bachelor pad, country style, matched with Mid-Century Modern furniture or a 1960s look. Very suitable for a Christmas gift or festive themed home accessory.

Handmade in Ireland.
