Feet moving on the shafts, opening and closing the ‘shed’, hands working in co-ordination, throw the shuttle, beat the cloth

Studio Donegal hope to keep the soft rhythm of the hand loom alive for many years to come, passing it down the younger generation, keeping it by passing it on

Not Your run of the mill mill!

Situated in the picturesque village of Kilcar, near Slieve League, Studio Donegal has been designing, hand-weaving and garment making since 1979.

Owned and operated by the Donaghy family, Studio Donegal remains true to it’s original objective, maintaining the traditional craft of hand-weaving, which was in danger of being lost due to the introduction of machine weaving in the 1960’s.

Visitors to the mill shop are welcome to take an informal tour of the works, meet the team and see the products being made.

All products bearing the Studio Donegal label are hand woven and made in the mill in Kilcar.
