Description

This striking costume was worn by Thomas Gruffydd. He was Lady Llanover’s family harpist. He would play the harp to entertain guests at Llanover Hall. Lady Llanover was keen to promote the Welsh woollen industry. She insisted that all workers and tenants on her estate wore clothes made of Welsh wool. She even went as far as designing a special pattern for the cloth. Take a look at Thomas Gruffydd’s jacket. It is made of Lady Llanover’s ‘official’ fabric.
