Ceadogán Rugmakers — County Wexford, Ireland

From the website:

Ceadogán Rugmakers started out as a bespoke hearth rug business in Wexford, Ireland in 1981 under dye house master Tom Ceadogain.


In 1989 the company was acquired by Denis Kenny and Fiona Gilboy, Denis having undertaken an apprenticeship with Tom (after stints as a fisherman, teacher and farmer! The long and winding road!).

Over thirty years with Denis and Fiona at the helm, Ceadogán Rugmakers went from a small hearth rug business to a leading maker of fine bespoke rugs and wall hangings.


In 2020 the baton was passed once more and Colm Kenny and Martina Navrátilová [sic] took the reins, having spent several years deeply involved in the running of Ceadogán Rugmakers.

In good keeping with Ceadogán tradition, both Martina and Colm found their way to the craft of rug making via the scenic route, with backgrounds in fine art and furniture ( and a few other detours along the way!)


Works from Cedogán Rugmakers can now be found hanging or lying all around the globe.
