Foxford, Connemara Comfort Throw
The comfort throws are a slightly smaller version of the bestselling standard throws – ideal for cosying up on the sofa or draping over the back of your favourite armchair. Designed in a traditional Irish plaid reminiscent of the first blankets to be woven in our mill, the Connemara Throw takes its name from the wild and rugged landscape of Connemara in North West Galway. The deep purple, blue and green tones have been meticulously chosen by the designer Helen McAlinden to reflect the mountains, lakes and rivers of this beautiful area. Made from 100% lambswool, this soft throw is expertly woven at FOXFORD using the same techniques that have been employed for over 130 years.
A note from the designer, Helen McAlinden:
“To celebrate 130 years of timeless, Irish craftsmanship, we wanted to go back to our roots and pay homage to the landscape that first inspired us all those years ago.”
Perfect for that special gift.
Excellent customer service.
Personal touch with gift notes.
Excellent service and gorgeous product.
We’re well aware of the impact that consumer purchasing decisions can have on the environment. As a retailer, we feel our highest responsibility is to ensure that we’re taking measures to minimize our impact, and the impact of our customers' purchases, on the environment.
Here are some of the ways we plan to play our part for the planet:
- Sustainable packaging
- Re-use of cardboard and brown paper received from suppliers in customer orders
- Continuously educate our team about the environmental crisis and explore ways that we can use our business to help
- Deal primarily with Irish suppliers to minimize our carbon footprint
- Aiming to be plastic free
Quinlans was started by Brigin and John P Quinlan in Macroom, County Cork. We’ve had some fantastic people join our team over the years, and any success that we’ve had is as much theirs as it is ours. Our current team is small and we pride ourselves on cultivating a culture where people can be themselves at work, feel safe and appreciated, and have an opportunity to continuously learn and develop.
There’s something special about seeing a person master his or her craft. We’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the most talented Irish and European craft makers, from ceramics and glass to jewellery and textiles. We carefully choose the suppliers we work with and operate through trust and transparency to ensure lasting relationships are formed. We value getting to know the people behind the products that we offer.
