TALK: The Tweed Project

  • Ard Bia the House Henry Street Galway Ireland (map)

The conversion of a dilapidated workshop into a comfortable family home is testament to an enlightened and energetic owner and a commitment by the design team to realize the potential of the previous semi derelict building.

Economy and the recycling of materials has brought about minimal scandi inspired interiors which echo the buildings industrial past and make a fitting Atelier space for The Tweed Project.

The Tweed Project create handmade, one off pieces that combine beautiful Irish fabrics with modern tailoring for a truly authentic expression of Irish design.

The Tweed Project’s latest collection resurrects the past to deliver relevant looks for today.  The brand takes its commitment to sustainability and the environment one step further this season by using no new fabrics in the making of this collection.  Instead, the design team worked with Irish suppliers to source fabric already in circulation and re-using quality vintage pieces.  The collection works hard to create less waste in the production process and implements sustainable practices to equalise the impact of climate change.  The collection re-configures fabrics into contemporary, handmade pieces, all made to last a lifetime.  

The Tweed Projects founders, Triona and Aoibheann, will talk about the brand’s natural evolution and be joined in conversation with Elspeth Lee, Superposition and Deirdre McMenamin, LiD Architecture to discuss the importance of reuse, recycling and recuperation.
