Named after the islands of Ireland, and inspired by their stories and history, our Island Range of shawls and scarves is a fusion of modern Irish design and color palette together with the traditional Celtic knot weave in Irish/Gaelic. This mix of old and new designs makes for a stunning range of Pashminas.
Hang Tag story card reads…Caher.
Caher Island lies off the coast of Co Mayo and is Barely one mile in length, however among local fishermen it is considered to be one of the holiest islands of Connaught. Some believe miraculous cures can be achieved by lying overnight in St Patrick’s bed, (Leaba Phádraig), or by drinking water from St Patrick’s well. For generations sailors would lower their sails and say a little prayer when sailing close to its shore. One sailor who showed no such respect however was the infamous Pirate Queen, Grace O’Malley, who landed on Caher Island to capture a MacMahon follower who killed her Spanish lover.
