Ty Mawr Classics was started in 1991 by Michelle Wherry in Granville, Ohio. With head artist Sue Scarpitti the first community, Granville, Ohio was custom designed into a functional two layer coverlet: December 13,1991.
Since then hundreds of organizations in communities, high schools and universities have utilized this idea of capturing their history into woven form. By using the product as a fundraiser these organizations across America and worldwide (American military posts) have made tremendous profits for their communities and put the money back into the community as scholarship funds, building restoration, computer equipment, band uniforms, etc.
Ty Mawr means "Big House" or Large Home" in Welsh. Michelle Wherry lived in at 235 N. Pearl St. in Granville, Ohio. That house was built by a Welsh carpenter in 1834 and the name Ty Mawr is on the front of the house.
Ty Mawr custom designs coverlets and tapestries for businesses, local, state and national organizations. Our custom design products promote brand and name recognition, emblem, insignia and equipment recognition and history. These custom designs are excellent as promotional products, advertising specialties, premiums and give aways.
