We were contacted by Brown Thomas last year, they wanted to design a series of rugs to work with the interior at the new store in Dundrum Town Centre. Shortly after we were visited by John Redmond and team at our workshop and showroom in Co. Wexford. This was a great way for their designers to get to know us, see our working process and how we operate.
We were thrilled to be a part of this project with such a stunning finish in every detail of the store – huge thank you to John Redmond and all the team at Brown Thomas.
What is your creative process? How do you get started on a project/collaboration like this?
We combine traditional materials and processes with a design-led approach to create high-end, modern rugs that push the boundaries of contemporary craft. Our process can vary hugely from one project to the next, we tailor our services to our clients needs.
We like to first get a sense of how best we can contribute through a clear understanding of what the client has in mind.
We have a deep rooted history of creative collaboration with some of Ireland’s finest designers and artists which gives us a vibrant channel for the skills and passion we have grown over 30 years in our craft.
Is there anything in particular you would like customers to take from your work?
When you buy a Ceadogán Rug you are investing in a lasting piece that will bring beauty and comfort to your home for many years to come.
Your custom is supporting the continuation of our much loved and cherished tradition.
We are a small brand with good intentions and this is imbued in all of our works, from the sourcing of materials through to the designing, making and delivery we are fully committed to our core values of quality and sustainability.
How does your Irish heritage and locality influence your work?
Living and working from our family home deeply roots and grounds us in our surroundings and instills a sense of pride, commitment to our craft and trade.
We believe passionately that our choices and actions can have a positive impact on our immediate environment and nourish our connections with the natural world and its cycles.
We remain true to our roots – fiercely independent, committed to our local heritage and tradition of exceptional craftsmanship.
What does it mean to you to see your work in the Brown Thomas Dundrum store?
