The company was founded in 1898 when Scottish textile manufacturer Alexander Morton established a hand-woven rug manufactory on the western coast of Ireland. Drawing on the talents inherent in a people who had worked with wool and weaving for generations, Morton’s rugs soon became known as “Donegals,” following the oriental tradition of naming carpets after the village in which they were made.
From the outset, the fame of Donegal Carpets spread throughout the world as the name became synonymous with fine craftsmanship in carpet manufacture. Donegal Carpets immediately created a niche in the market with our now-famous Arts & Crafts designs, commissioned from the drawing boards of contemporary notables such as C.F.A. Voysey. C.F.A. Voysey was a prominent Arts & Crafts Movement architect and designer, born in Yorkshire in 1857. He studied with J. P. Seddon until 1874 and then studied for a year under George Devey. He established his own practice in 1882.
Voysey's early work was as a designer of wallpapers, fabrics,carpets and furnishings in a simple Arts & Crafts style but he is renowned as the architect of a number of notable country houses.
