Who: Mourne Textiles is a third-generation run workshop Northern Ireland, set up in 1954 by the pioneering textile designer and weaver Gerd Hay-Edie. The studio is currently run by Gerd's grandson, Mario Sierra, and his mother, master weaver Karen Hay-Edie. What: Hand-loomed woven rugs, throws, cushions, and placemats made from locally spun yarn. Insider scoop: Mario will be joining us this Saturday at the Remodelista London Market , where he'll be showcasing new cushions from the forthcoming Mourne Monochrome collection featuring black and white weaves. He'll also be taking preorders for a new line of baby and children's blankets, and offering Remodelista Market shoppers a 15 percent discount on goods for sale on the day. Above: A selection of Blankets and Throws  will be available from £195 ($309). Above: The Shaggy Dog Cushion (L) and the Mended Tweed Cushion (R) are made from custom-spun merino wool from Donegal yarn and are both revived designs created by Gerd Hay-Edie. The Hillie and Co. sofa is covered in a Gerd Hay-Edie fabric and was commissioned by the iconic furniture designer Robin Day. (Side note: I grew up with this very sofa in this fabric.) Above: Handwoven Placemats ; £85 ($134.68) for a set of four. Looking to go undercover?
