The Donnemara is a signature Donegal Carpets design which was produced in many colorways over the years. Like all of C.F.A. Voysey
's designs, nature is a point of inspiration, in this instance roses and tulips; but botanical accuracy is not as important as the creation of pattern, rhythm and overall composition. The Donnemara, along with the Wykehamist
, shows Voysey's interest in contrasting the scale of border elements with those of the field, creating a wonderful sense of dynamism in the overall design.
