Avoca Nominated in the Irish Made Awards Textile Category!

Feb 08, 2023

We are absolutely delighted to be nominated in this year's @irishcountrymag Irish Made Awards textiles category with our Sunrise Stripe Mohair throw! If you'd like to cast your vote, you can do so from the link below.



Our Sunrise Stripe Mohair Throw is created from concept to craft by our wonderful Avoca design team. Drawing inspiration from the rural landscape of Co. Wicklow, the birthplace of Avoca, this beautiful throw boasts a colour palette reminiscent of Wicklow fields, with slate grey stone walls meeting vibrant yellow gorse bushes.  It is crafted from a lofty, weightlessly warm blend of 70% mohair and 30% pure wool.

Derived from the old Irish word abhoca meaning ‘little treasure’, our weaving mill is a gem tucked away in Avoca village. Ireland’s oldest weaving mill, we’ve been weaving here since 1723 and are proud to say there are third generation weavers still working here today. If you love this beautiful throw as much as we do, you can buy it here.

We fondly call our throws ‘woven hugs’ because they’ve been created with love and care and provide warmth and comfort to people’s homes all over.

We are honoured to be finalists in the Irish Made Awards’ Textiles category alongside a host of fantastic Irish craftspeople and creators! We would like to extend a huge congratulations to everyone else shortlisted for the awards, and a huge thank you for every single vote. We are so grateful!
