Hi Everyone. First of all, apologies for not checking in last week. Things are a little busy getting the new collection ready for the fall so I had to forgo the weekly blog. We’ll be launching very soon and I’m really excited so watch this space! So this week I’m continuing my re-visits to our Meet The Makers series. This week its the turn of the hugely talented Ethel Kelly, maker of the most stunning Ogham gifts.
Ogham writing is Ireland’s ancient script. It can still be found on many standing stones throughout various rural parts of Ireland. We went to meet Ethel, the maker of the award winning Ogham prints who tells us the story behind the ancient manuscript of Ireland and how her prints are uniquely made.
