Gerd Hay-Edie

Gerd Hay-Edie, founder of Mourne Textiles

Based at the foot of the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland, Mourne Textiles is a third generation textiles company drawing on the country’s rich heritage in wool production to continue the strong design legacy of its Norwegian founder Gerd Hay-Edie. Established in 1954 as her own personal weaving studio, Gerd Hay-Edie built Mourne Textiles into a global company with a reputation for beautifully textured and innovatively woven rugs and upholstery, winning the approval of mid-century furniture designers and taste-makers including Robin Day and Sir Terence Conran. Production of Hay-Edie’s original designs continue to this day thanks to her daughter, Karen Hay-Edie, and grandson, Mario Sierra, both of whom learnt the intricate craft of weaving from Hay-Edie herself.
