The Makers Story

Studio Donegal is an iconic spinning & hand weaving business in the scenic, Gaeltacht village of Kilcar, Co. Donegal, renowned for hand-woven excellence, producing beautiful timeless Donegal Tweed clothing & accessories. It was started by Kevin and Wendy Donaghy in 1979 but in recent years they have proudly handed over the reins of Studio Donegal to their son Tristan who continues their work of preserving the traditional indigenous skill of hand weaving in southwest Donegal.

Their genuine handwoven tweed sells all over the world in exclusive top end craft shops, they have maintained their brand ethos of being the only genuine hand weaving mill in Ireland and that will always be their hallmark, that said it’s not enough for this generation to simply follow in the footprints of the past they believe they need to find ways to use our traditional skills to create contemporary crafts. They are always looking for new sources of inspiration and currently are having a lot of fun with Rainbows,

It all happens at Studio Donegal, from blending colours of fleece which are used in their distinctive rainbow blankets with a working Victorian spinning mule which perfectly replicates the process of had spinning. Then they prepare the warp threads for the weavers who skilfully weave their beautiful tweeds and finally in the sewing room they make their unique items of clothing or accessories, the only thing they don’t have on site is their flock of sheep.
