Plas Newydd Whistler Carpet Appeal
The Whistler dining room at Plas Newydd is no ordinary room with its decorative scheme including the mural and a colourful hand-woven carpet chosen by the family in the 1930s. After more than 70 years of family gatherings and thousands of visitors, the carpet has finally reached the point of retirement. With your help, we can restore this room to its former glory.
- We need 12 special dyes to recreate the design
- The carpet had over 160,000 footsteps last year
- We need to recreate over 40 feet of hand-woven carpet

" Losing the carpet is devastating. It's about celebrating and experiencing the room in its originally intended design with the rich colours and patterns. "
