the irish throw

Le plaid irlandais

When days are shorter, we do appreciate to spend more time hunkered down at home. This is the time of the year when we want our rooms to be as cosy and comfortable as possible.

Whether they are slung over a chair for impromptu snuggling or used as decoration on a sofa or a bed, wool throws are a must-have. They add texture, warmth and colour to a room and can transform ordinary furniture to the stars of the room.

At Le Comptoir Irlandais, we are taken with Avoca and John Hanly, two companies renowned for the Irish throw.


Les plaids irlandais Avoca

Since 1723, the looms in the Avoca Mill, County Wicklow have been weaving beautiful throws in natural luxurious fabrics like lambswool and mohair.

Avoca represents almost 300 years of skills and expertise at the service of each crafted item infused with the vibrant colours of their local landscape.

Their designs are inspired by the deep Irish roots of the company. Thanks to their traditional craft and ancestral skills, Avoca offers both attractive and qualitative throws that are exported worldwide.
