The chance discovery of one of the last working linen mills in Northern Ireland
led to the creation of Linen Lane. Jill Gurney has had a long career in interiors and textiles and has strong family links to linen as both her grandfathers grew flax.

Her passion is Irish linen which is one of the most sustainable, ecofriendly
fabrics available .

Using this high quality, locally woven Irish linen and a variety of techniques she
creates her lampshades and gifts.

Jill is one of the resident designer-makers in Makers House at The Designerie,
Bushmills where she would be happy to meet you to discuss making something
special for you or your home.
