Loyalty is a hand-tufted wool area rug which pays tribute to the Celtic hound, or . Hounds were seen as extremely valuable and trustworthy allies in ancient Ireland due to their companionship and ability in battle.

The hound was the Celts' best friend

A famous Irish legend tells of Cú Chulainn, a mythical Irish warrior who was born Setanta. He killed Culann’s wolfhound in self-defense, then offered to take its place until a replacement could be found. Noted for their great size, the wolfhounds were used to hunt large game and even pulled men from horseback in battle.

Devoted hounds are often mentioned in Celtic myths, such as Bran and Sceolan which belonged to Finn mac Cumhail. Underworld hounds, such as the Welsh Cwn Annwn belonging to Arawn. The Devoted hounds protect their masters to the end, whereas the Underworld Hounds run down and punish the guilty.

A contemporary design with great heritage

It features a brown and gold illustration with a matching border on a dark blue background. The border is typical of those found in the Book of Durrow, while the spiral of knots is from the Book of KellsThis design’s centrepiece is an interpretation of the Celtic hound.

We have designed this rug to suit any modern living space. It can be an interesting conversation topic in a living room, hallway or a bedroom.
