The Design Commission enabled Felicity to spend time at William Clarks of Upperlands, a progressive centre of linen production and design in Northern Ireland and a company with over 300 years textile experience. Working with Dundee graduate Duncan Neil, design entrepreneur behind the label ‘Earthed’, all stages of the industrial process from design to production for the international interiors market were explored.

We are very grateful to Duncan and his team for their time and commitment to this new initiative. Duncan Neil joined the panel of experts at our twilight Talk about Design: Place-making and Creative Industry.
