Irish Designer Gifts is having a first anniversary sale with 50 percent of  Irish Linen House, Foxford Woollen Mills, and Bunbury Boards until July 31, 2013.

The inspiration to set up Irish Designer Gifts in 2012, came from the creator of this online Irish gift store, Kathleen Cafferky, who saw a niche in the online marketplace to showcase contemporary Irish designed products.  These products are available in stores in Ireland but were difficult to source online, for the Irish diaspora worldwide.  The uniqueness of this store is that all the products are made and designed in Ireland by  top designers.

The inspiration to set up Irish Designer Gifts in 2012, came from the creator of this online Irish gift store, Kathleen Cafferky, who saw a niche in the online marketplace to showcase contemporary Irish designed products.  These products are available in stores in Ireland but were difficult to source online, for the Irish diaspora worldwide.  The uniqueness of this store is that all the products are made and designed in Ireland by  top designers.

Every designer has a story and is available on Our Designers page of the website which gives an insight into their creative existence.  Kathleen always had an appreciation for Irish Craft and Design and is extremely aware of the time and effort that each designer takes to produce their exclusive piece for the marketplace for all to cherish.

Before setting up this business she sought assistance and advice from the Craft Council of Ireland, Enterprise Ireland and numerous friends who steered her into the creation of this unique Irish business. Historically, the Irish are a creative group of people and the journey in finding contemporary designed gifts for the store was both rewarding and inspirational.

Irish designers value their work preciously and Kathleen was delighted that by Christmas 2012, products from  Irish Linen House in Dublin, Bunbury Boards  in Carlow, Foxford Woollen Mills in Mayo and Bog Standard Candles and Soaps in Down were all available to purchase online from Irish Designer Gifts. This year has seen the arrival of Stradbally Jewellers from Waterford , Heraldic Gifts from Dublin and Susan Boland Ceramics form Kilkenny. Kathleen has been painting for a number of years and she also showcases her paintings in the store.

Irish Designer Gifts hopes to continue expanding by increasing their Irish designer base, whilst ensuring that the highest standards of quality and design are maintained.  It will always be ‘quality’ over ‘quantity’ and visitors to the store can be assured that the products will be made and designed in Ireland by contemporary designers.

The US is still their biggest marketplace and they hope to promote themselves further into this market and also into Europe where there is an increasing demand for Irish designed goods.  They appreciate feedback from their customers and take on board worthwhile suggestions to enhance the website for all future customers.

Irish Linen House, Foxford Woollen Mills and Bunbury Boards are all registered members of the Craft Council Of Ireland which is the organisation that champions the Craft Industry in Ireland.

Irish Linen House Napkins, Placemats and Table runners are designed by Greg Whelan from Dublin. Irish Linens are very traditional gifts to receive and will last a lifetime. These products are handmade and designed in Ireland. They are ideal corporate gifts, wedding gifts or home gifts.

Foxford Woollen Mills in County Mayo was founded in 1892 by Mother Bernard, the Irish Sister of Charity. The Mill has undergone many changes since then, but is still a thriving mill employing local craftspeople and Irish designers who now create a range of contemporary and classic rugs, throws, and scarves for all to enjoy.

Bunbury Boards are unique Irish gifts from Ireland which are designed and made at Lisnavagh Estate, in County Carlow, from the finest Irish hardwoods sourced from sustainable woodland. They are very popular as Irish wedding gifts. The Bunbury Board is fast becoming the must have accessory to have in your kitchen and is well known worldwide.
