Ceadogán Rugs with Katie Hession

Denis Kenny, owner/maker at Ceadogán started making rugs in 1989. For the past 25 years he has been committed to the craft of rug-making, and during that time has a massed a lifetime of experience in working with wools and silks. As a small enterprise, Ceadogán Rugs is focused, highly skilled, very experienced and dedicated to pairing the traditional values of remarkable craftsmanship and contemporary design. In collaborating with a variety of designers, Ceadogán strive for innovation and originality. It is Denis’ meticulous care and attention to detail which truly distinguishes a Ceadogán rug. The client can buy a handmade rug from the impressive collection in the showroom, or can commission their own pieces, being involved every step of the way; selecting yarns from the extensive stockroom, collaborating with the designers, and seeing their concept follow through to the making and completion.

A Ceadogán rug is personal and truly unique. It is this interest in people and commitment to excellent service that allows Ceadogán to operate and grow in an ever changing market. During the past few months the Ceadogán studios have been bustling and busy, most notably with a 14 x 4m long rug commissioned for Kelly’s Hotel in Rosslare, Wexford,  designed by Maree Hensey. Last year Ceadogán collaborated with the Textiles Department at the National College of Art and Design. As a result, final year student Katie Hession’s winning rug designs were recently installed in the Herbert Park Hotel, Ballsbridge, Dublin.
