Built on the solid foundations of a rich heritage spanning five generations, the Molloy family have been in the textile business since James Molloy began weaving in the 19th Century.

Located on the Atlantic northwest coast in Ardara, Co. Donegal; this father and son team are synonymous with what great craftsmanship is today. Their wealth of knowledge, skill and expertise comes through from their ancestors and continues to live on in the modern techniques that they have embraced. Inspiration surrounds them from the dramatic beauty of the ocean, to the sky, hills, and mountains of this region famed for its tweed production. It is these elements that are echoed in the intricate beauty of the colours and tones found in their tweeds.

Revered for the colour, beauty and quality of their tweeds, Molloy & Sons are one of the few companies who can proudly claim to create authentic Donegal Tweed. Close attention is given to every process from conception to the finished piece ensuring that standards are met and exceeded. Yarns are spun and dyed locally while colour matching; designing, warping, weaving and dispatch are all done in-house. Working closely with clients and being equipped to respond to specific requests means that quality is always the end result.

Today, Molloy & Sons tweeds represent the history of the past, the ambition of the future, and the ever–present beauty of the Atlantic coast of Donegal. The undeniable allure and quality of these tweeds will ensure that the legacy and tradition of weaving continues on to inspire customers all over the world.
