A lengthy career in the luxury hotel industry spanning over 20 years in Senior Management positions after studying in Shannon College of Hotel Management drove my passion for textile and creative design. I have been involved in several hotel openings, from business concept to final finish incorporating the full design spectrum. This nurtured my strong love of fabric’s, yarns and varying textures. This too fueled my passion for further study in Limerick College of Art and Design. Armed with extensive hotel business experience concluding my role as a luxury hotel manager, a brand development background and an introduction to the world of textiles, Urban Aran was born.
This is the history of textile and design, our heritage brought back to the fore of our minds incorporating modern era influences of city street scapes and art culture in urban areas in socially conscious standards of practice.
Past traditions combined with present design.
We hope you will enjoy being warmed by them x
