For the accession to the throne of Princess Elizabeth in 1952, the Royal Household commissioned a gift of hand-woven linen damask from

 

 

the heart of rural Ulster. There, a two-hundred year long tradition of damask weaving was being continued by the manufacturer John

 

 

McCollum. The recent rediscovery of his Royal Loom, and its restoration, opens a new chapter in Irish linen damask: one looking to

 

 

the future, but grateful to the past.
