Mourne Textiles was founded in the foothills of the Mourne Mountains, County Down, by Norwegian textile designer, Gerd Hay-Edie. Her iconic textile designs and pioneering weaving techniques became a staple of mid-century British design and collaborations with Robin Day, Hille and Conran, established her lasting influence upon the world of weaving.
Gerd’s grandson, Mario Sierra, shares his grandmother’s deep passion for weaving and continues the Mourne Textiles legacy from the original mill in Rostrevor. Today, they connect the designs of the past with modern influences, to create a collection of luxury home furnishing fabrics, cushions, blankets and scarves.
Mourne Textiles continue to champion the beauty and community of their surroundings and combine this with respect for craftsmanship, artistry and design excellence.
In a world of standardisation, Mourne Textiles embraces the unique.
