Wild Cocoon

Wild Cocoon

Designer and maker Deirdre Duffy has gained much worthy recognition for her hand-woven creations since launching her company Wild Cocoon in 2015. Most notably she was the overall winner of the Irish Fashion Innovation awards in 2017, as well as scooping the award for accessories in the same year.

A graduate of NCAD, Deirdre has an intuitive approach to design and likes to develop her patterns directly on her foot-powered loom. Her collection of lambswool blankets for 2018, draw inspiration from her surrounding landscape, directly referencing places such as Keem beach on Achill and the mountains of Mayo. Each of her richly textured blankets tell a story, becoming heirlooms to treasure.
