Our Designer

Our Irish linen collection is designed by Peter McNutt in the Baird McNutt studio, in picturesque Downings, County Donegal

Baird McNutt Irish Linen Donegal

On the picturesque north west Irish coast of Donegal, overlooking Sheephaven Bay in the Atlantic Ocean, lies the Baird McNutt studio, where our Irish linen collections are designed by Peter McNutt.

The view from Peter's studio window changes on an hourly basis, as continually changing weather patterns alter the lighting and colours of the breathtaking landscape.

Born into a textile family, Peter learnt about fabrics from an early age, helping out in the weaving factory and picking up much of his knowledge from his father.

Educated at Galashiels textile college in Scotland, Peter's technical ability was enhanced, along with a natural ability for putting colour together. These are the skills that can bring your aspirations into reality.

Peter works on an ethos of listening to what you want and developing fabrics that suit your needs. Baird McNutt is a global business and Peter's inspiration is drawn from the many cultures he encounters. A keen windsurfer, he takes full advantage of the unspoilt beaches and hills of Donegal, blessed with such natural inspiration on his doorstep.

At Baird McNutt we have a large range of customers, from tailoring through to casual men's and ladies wear. Whatever your requirements, we are confident that our creativity, our experience and love of Irish linen, will give your product an extra edge.
