Putting the rug back under iconic brand

Carpet-making skills built up in Connemara that were nearly lost are attracting
attention in London on the back a new luxury range.

FOR NEARLY four decades, McMurray Carpets, based in Moyard in Connemara, supplied embassies, banks, luxury yachts and hotels worldwide with intricately designed, high-quality creations. Today, the company, renamed Connemara Carpets, is back in action after a two-year gap, travelling to London recently to exhibit during London Design Week, the hub for top international designers. The Moyard carpets of the company’s earlier chapter travelled far, even into the world of Middle Eastern riches, furnishing palaces in Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, along with those held by the Saudi royal family in Riyadh and Jeddah.

'Patricia and her team at Connemara Carpets could not have been more helpful when it came to designing our very site-specific rug. We had a particular idea in mind and Patricia brought all her expertise to the design ensuring that the end result was exactly as, or better than we had imagined. Several versions of the idea were played with and we spent a long time pouring over the amazing selection of colours available. Each stage of the design was checked along the way and only completed once we had all agreed. The whole process was a pleasure. We are delighted with our carpet and are sure it will be in place for a long time.'
