Artist's Description

The carpet factory was founded in 1898 by Scottish textile manufacturer Alexander Morton. Three of the four Donegal Carpets manufactories were closed during the Depression, and production was centered in the original factory in the village of Killybegs, where the company continued to create bespoke carpets for stately homes and government buildings. The Morton family sold the company to an Irish consortium, Donegal Carpets Ltd., in 1954. By 1987, orders had dwindled as changing fashions and economies had taken their toll, and the factory closed its doors. In 1999 Donegal Carpets reopened and the original looms came back to life. Today, the Donegal Carpets factory at Killybegs is the only place in the British Isles where hand-knotted carpets are still made.
