The inspiration for Dubarry’s tweed jackets comes from the four regions of Ireland, Ulster, Leinster, Munster and Connacht. Each region is unique with landscapes of contrasting beauty, steeped in legend and history. From rugged rock faces to gentler pastures and hills, the Irish countryside provided the palette from which we created our beautiful range of tweeds.
The many tartans of Ireland are mostly attributed to the counties and districts, rather than from families as is typical in Scotland. They reflect the area from which they originate with the subtle, warm colours of the countryside and most people of Irish heritage wear the tartan of the region from where their families came. Each tweed design is unique to Dubarry, with patterns developed in association with Lovats tweed mill in Scotland and crafted from 100% pure new wool.
Naming our tweed patterns
When it came to naming our Dubarry tweeds we wanted to celebrate our Irish heritage, landscape and nature. We wanted to recognise the regions in which we live and work, and also capture a feel for the elements and natural palette of colours that typifies our homeland.
Combining our native regions, natural elements and Irish flowers, plants and trees, we created a broad and evocative selection of names for our Tweed Collection.
All Dubarry Tweeds are enhanced with Teflon® fabric protector, which provides durable, long-lasting protection against oil- and water-based stains, dust and dry soil. Fabrics with Teflon® stay looking newer longer, and are easier to care for but never impacts on the look, feel, colour or breathability of the fabric.
