Woman lying on her side outside wrapped in “Touch” blanket by MC Kirwan and Cushendale
While we’re connected to the past through our techniques and processes, we’re also in a constant state of evolution and growing. Design exploration and collaborations with artists and creators push the boundaries of what’s considered Cushendale, with new ways of looking at things and new products to experience.

The Merrion Hotel Blanket

Commissioned by the Merion Hotel in Dublin and designed by artist Ellie Dunne, the blanket was created to celebrate the prestigious hotel’s 25th birthday. The design inspiration came from Mainie Jellett’s painting "Madonna and Child" which hangs in the front hall of the hotel, drawing from the rich colourways used by the artist. The blanket is woven from native ‘Galway’ Irish wool and finished with a contrasting blue stitch edging.

“Touch”, Mc Kirwan X Cushendale.

We collaborated with London based Irish abstract artist MC Kirwan to create the ultimate ‘comfort blanket’. This project was united by passion, craftsmanship and sustainability, inspired by touch, comfort and nature. It creates awareness and prompts discussion, while also offering beauty and comfort to the world in a sensitive and considered way.
