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. My rediscovery of this Royal Loom, alongside the

 

 

 

challenging task of its restoration, has opened a new chapter in Irish damask. One looking to the future, yet respectful of the past.
