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

 

 

the heart of rural Ulster, where a centuries' long tradition of damask weaving was still practised under the manufacturer John

 

 

McCollum. The discovery of his Royal loom, alongside its restoration, opens a new chapter in Irish linen damask: one looking to

 

 

the future, whilst grateful to the past.
