MOURNE TEXTILES EXHIBITION

07 – 29 SEPTEMBER

6 PLACE DE LA MADELEINE

75008 PARIS

 

Mourne Textiles has been weaving for over half a century from their workshop at the foot of the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland. The family business was established by Gerd Hay-Edie, a Norwegian design pioneer who became a noted creative force in the mid-century design movement by working on collaborations with Robin Day for Hille, Terence Conran and Liberty to produce bespoke upholstery fabrics and rugs.

The exhibition will focus on the techniques developed by Mourne Textiles and will mark the launch of three Mourne Textiles scarves: black, grey and green, an exclusive colour to Margaret Howell.

Weaving demonstrations will take place during Paris Design Week
