I cannot believe how fast December is moving, we are already only just over a week to Christmas and also nearly at the end of my Gift Guide series. We have already shared Irish Designed/Made Jewellery, Arts & Prints and Bags. Today, we are back with the Christmas Gift Guide to Irish Designed Accessories. Hopefully, you will find inspiration for some wonderful gifts.
I love when products are handmade and use an old traditional method to create beautiful items. Wild Cocoon products are handwoven on a foot-powered floor loom ensuring that no two pieces are ever the same, and they are show-stopping. Deirdre’s work is outstanding in every sense of the word and we loved learning about it here. Certainly, if you are looking to give someone a special gift that will last for many years to come, you should check out the sensational creations of Wild Cocoon.
Niamh creates some of the most wonderful and elegant designs on silk scarves. She has loved drawing since an early age and that creative flair comes through in her work (Source). They add such a beautiful, vibrant element to any outfit and her colour combinations are stunningly creative. Her work is certainly something that would be perfect for that person in your life that seems to have everything and loves beautiful things.
It can be quite difficult to create something unique in this world of fantastic creatives and talented designers but Fiain has done just that. They design, cut and hand finish each piece of oak & tweed themselves using laser cutting and traditional methods. These are not just luxury accessories, they’re conversation starters and would be the perfect gift for someone who likes dressing well and wearing quality products.
Ciara Silke is a Galway based designer who creates beautifully elegant scarves that have the stunning effect of making you feel elegant and decadent. She uses unconventional colour schemes and hand-rendered print techniques. This results in vivid and compelling scarves, which you can read more about here. I have no doubt that if you were to find one of her beautiful works of art under the tree you would be smiling from here until next Christmas!
Brendan creates beautiful handmade pieces that are made from natural fibres of Cashmere, Silk & Linen. And each collection has a wonderful story to go along with it. Something very unusual is that their newest weave structure embodies the incredible dance of light on water, inspired by Ireland’s position ‘at the edge of the world’. As natural light touches their braille-like silk & linen surfaces, these pieces awaken, changing colour. This is simply magical and his bow ties and ties are just beautiful and would make the most beautiful Christmas gift.
My Hazel Greene scarf is always one that gets so many compliments when I wear it due to the outstanding finish and vibrant colours. I would certainly recommend one of her pieces to anyone who loves when art and design combine. I loved learning more about her inspirations in this interview and that so many of her designs come from her own paintings. Her scarves would make the most wonderful gift for someone you love.
