Llaeth y Llan launch a limited edition Christmas Pudding Yogurt and to coincide with the yogurt on sale in stores throughout Wales, the design on the pots has been commissioned into a highly collectable limited run of Welsh blankets and pillows woven here at Melin Tregwynt.
Nant Gwrtheyrn or “the Nant” as it is often called, is home to the National Welsh Language and Heritage Centre, a magical place located in a former quarrying village on the northern coast of the Llŷn Peninsula in north Wales.
Melin Tregwynt have collaborated with the team at Nant Gwrtheyrn to create an exclusive blanket for the centre based on a 1960’s original Welsh tapestry design ‘ Vintage Star’
Using the subtle colours of the sky, sea and land found in this very special part of north west Wales, the blankets are woven from pure New Wool and are both beautiful and practical, hard wearing and easy to care for.
For their book “A Year in Pembrokeshire” photographer David Wilson and broadcaster Jamie Owen spent a year travelling around their beloved home county documenting communities and lives lived out in one of the most extraordinary landscapes in Britain.
They came to see us here at Melin Tregwynt and here are some of the images that David took
The annual Melin Tregwynt summer sale is now over. Blankets, throws, cushions, clothing and home accessories were all available half-price and it was a fantastic weekend at the mill.
In 2017 we were asked by Megan Davies, a student in her final year of Fashion Design at USW, if we would sponsor her Graduate Show by providing the fabric. We agreed to do this and she produced an amazing collection.
It fuses the Swiss cross with graphical elements of a typical Welsh double cloth pattern and the colours reflect those of the meadows, forests and rock faces that surround the hotel.
Heather Birnie, a photographer and Sarah Hellen from Jwrnal visited the mill earlier this month and here are some of the photographic images that Heather took.
Jwrnal ('journal') features many traditional rural crafts including; pottery, weaving, chair making, textile art, wood work and more.
Some years ago we exhibited with Muji in Japan and we were really excited to be asked to work with them again, supplying our doublecloth fabrics to their new concept store, Found Muji, which has been launched in Japan, Europe and China, but not yet in the UK.
Found Muji’s goal is “to find good stuff that lasts for a long time” and they sell products from around the world, all sourced from small companies like ours and each product has its own unique story.
