Donegal rugs were originally produced in Ireland in the late 1890s by a Scottish textile merchant named Alexander Morton who produced machine-made rugs. With handmade Persian rugs dominating the market, Morton wanted to produce his own versions which led him to the port town of Donegal. Here he hired workers to make carpets using popular styles found in oriental rugs. Ironically, many Persian and Turkish rug weavers decided to make their own Donegal-styled pieces which many experts say are of better quality.
