Ireland has always been known for its linen, during the Victorian era Northern Ireland was the largest producer of linen worldwide. Today there are just a few mills left in Ireland weaving this very special and I think, underrated fabric. Many have fallen out of love with linen due to its tendency to crease badly – I feel this is part of its unique character and a well tailored, high quality linen garment – creased or not will still look well!
Our own mill design and weave linen namely for tailored garments – suits and blazers and there are a handful of other mills across Northern Ireland producing for shirts and home interiors.
To celebrate this sustainable and natural cloth we have just launched a capsule Made in Ireland – Woven in Ireland shirt collection for men.
The Grandfather shirt – made in Ireland from start to finish.
There are three styles across four classic colours – oat, white, sky blue and navy. We have used a timeless hopsack linen from Baird McNutt, who are designing in Donegal and weaving in County Antrim.
Linen is made from the fibres of the flax plant, it is one of the oldest fabrics in the world and known for its cool, fresh properties. It is lightweight, made from natural fibres and a sustainable material. These beautifully tailored shirts are truly investment pieces designed and made to last.
