WoolCore Designs



Love these colourful and quirky bags from Woolcore Designs. The
couples seat bag is pure genius!  All their products are wool based and hand crafted in Wicklow.  They have the cutest 'woolaby' nursery range that features those little 'wooly two shoes' above.

Silk Scarf Heaven






I'm in love with ALL of these! A beautiful bright summery collection by Irish scarf designer Susannagh Grogan. Each of her gorgeous silk scarves come with its own quirky or historic quote such as this gem by
Aristotle
"Happiness is the meaning and purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence". 
Awwh!

Hill Picket Studio








These handsome set of sustainable and eco-friendly chopping boards are crafted at the picturesque Hill Picket Studio in Wicklow, using only natural and organic materials. All the boards are produced from rough lumber are hand finished with food grade oil. And whats more you can make you own! - The studio runs wood work courses in furniture making, guitar and violin crafting for beginners and the more advance among us. And more beautiful place could you  learn how to craft some wood than at the foothills of the Wicklow hills.

Made by Node








I've long been a fan of Irish Illustrator Chris Haughton's work, if you are not familiar you must check out his award winning children's picture book  ' A bit lost' which is up there with the cutest books of all time. Chris has long been a supporter and designer for fair trade company People Tree and an ongoing project of his has been Node, which sees designers like him working with Nepalese carpet makers to create these beautiful handmade rugs hand spun from Tibetan wool with all proceeds going to schools and orphanages in Nepal. You can follow and purchase their work here.
