Melin Tregwynt design and make wool blankets, throws and cushions, furniture, accessories and, indeed, clothing that are incredibly desirable. Their work is essentially Welsh and also innovative and modern. And, yes, they also have a lovely Labrador called Marther who can be seen here modeling their Caerdydd Armchair in natural boucle and contrasting cushions. Two and three seat sofas are also available.
And these remarkably clean looking sheep are inspecting The Eadie armchair by Donna Wilson for the renowned SCP. It is upholstered in Melin Tregwynt’s Mondo Rose fabric made from 100% Shetland wool. So, just maybe, they are experience a strange sense of the familiar. The fabric is more than worthy of a closer inspection.
100% Shetland wool, and as robust and resilient as you would expect from a Welsh mill, even suited for contract use. And if you were wondering where the tradition comes from, there has been a mill on Melin Tregwynt’s property since the 17th century when local farmers would bring their fleeces to be spun into yarn and woven into fine Welsh wool blankets.
This is Howard, the father of current owner Eifon Griffiths. Would he approve of the fabrics now being produced by his son and his 20 strong work force? And how about Henry, Howard’s father who started the company in 1912? Would they approve of these wonderful fabrics which are shown in Paris, London and Milan?
Yes, we think he would. We know this is an interior design blog but just look at this trench coat made with Melin Tregwynt fabrics. So this is the recipe – craftsmanship, tradition, innovation and style. It all adds up to Melin Tregwynt, celebrating their centenary next year, desirably distinct and distinctly desirable.
