in 2012 by Damien and joi Hannigan. 31 chapel lane is a multidisciplinary design house and manufacturing company. From early 2016 the company is headquartered in the Georgian centre of Limerick City on the west coast of Ireland, 30 minutes away from Shannon Airport.
31 Chapel Lane's name is derived from a location in Cootehill, County Cavan, ireland, near Damien's childhood home. A historically significant town in the development of the Irish linen industry during the 17th and 18th centuries. This connection to the past and the socially transformative qualities of industry and design provided a starting point for the brand.
31chapel lane celebrates the virtues of structure, materiality, usability and timelessness.
the work emphasises and draws inspiration from traditions and practices that have been refined over time by the disciplines of tailoring and construction. these values are interrogated often and borne out through an ongoing discourse with companion architecture practice damien hannigan architects.
the items that we design and make are valuable, they are for people who expect to own things for life.
understated, considered and deliberate, all pieces are rigorously developed, tailored from irish linen and manufactured in-house by an experienced, happy team of professionals with a focus on standard, detail and longevity.
we do not offer promotional discounts or sales, in this way we ensure that our pricing remains honest and affordable all year round.
