So far on Floralesque, we have shared out Christmas Gift Guides for Irish Designed Jewellery and also Irish Designed Art & Prints. Well, today we are back with some lovely suggestions for Irish Designed Bags! I am quite the lover of beautiful handbags and there are plenty of options from talented Irish Designers and Makers to choose from.

Atlantic Equipment Project

The Atlantic Equipment Project AE Mama Tote All

How could I not include the fab Ashleigh with her amazing Atlantic Equipment Project brand! She has featured on the blog before and no doubt will again! Her bags are some of my favourites, they are very long wearing and beautifully made. There are plenty of styles to choose from but my favourite is still my Sea Green Canvas Rolltop Backpack. I like them for their functionality and many of my friends are also fans which is always a good sign.

Ale Walsh

Ale Walsh FLORA PINK

It was Ale’s beautiful clutches that first drew my eye. She uses bright, bold colours that make her intricate patterns and designs really stand out. Ale is based in Ireland and her designs exude elegant opulence with an artisan touch.  A clutch from her collection would be simply a stunning present to find under the Christmas tree.

Tish creates the most wonderful and useful totes. The core philosophy is to create elegant clothing and accessories which are made of a high quality. They are designed to withstand daily wear and tear as well the fast pace fashion trends of today. I love that she wants her products to be long wearing as in this era of fast fashion, buying an item that will last is more important now than ever.
