‘Their dresses always supplied a rich note of colour...Paisley shawls with elaborate designs ...that gave them an almost oriental appearance.’
Paul Henry - An Irish Portrait
Inspired by the richness of Ireland's textile history, from Irish lace to the iconic paisley shawls, Lou has translated these references into her award-winning collection of luxury scarves.
Original hand-drawn illustrations celebrate themes of heritage, romance and beauty, bringing the poetry of these stories to life.
An exciting development is the new range of scarves using the softest 100% merino wool and knitted in a family owned mill in the West of Ireland.
Being reversible, the scarves offer a range of styling options echoing the original Irish shawls which were often worn, 'light side out for Sunday Best'.
Each order is supplied with a booklet explaining the story behind the shawls, and a postcard, making the scarves a perfect gift too.
All silk scarves are packaged with a cotton dust bag embroidered with a specially woven label that says the following:
"An rud is annamh is iontach" – "What is seldom is wonderful."
Gift packaging is available on request.
