The Genuine Irish Tweed Patchwork Quilt.
Handcrafted in County Donegal, Ireland by an 88-year-old bespoke tailoring firm, this is the genuine Irish patchwork quilt. Originally a symbol of Ireland's working class, tweed patchwork's appeal has since transcended socioeconomic status thanks to its superior heat retention, durability, and charm. Each tweed square is woven from the fine coat of purebred Suffolk and Texel sheep, breeds renowned for yielding a dense, warm fleece. The squares are hand-selected to create a patchwork with a rich array of colors and textures, evoking the diverse landscape of the Donegal Highlands. The squares are handwoven using straight lock stitching, a technique that provides additional strength at the seams and yields a more durable quilt. The underside of the quilt is lined with 100% cotton that's soft against the skin. Since the tweed squares are selected and sewn by hand, each quilt is truly the only one of its kind. Dry clean only.
