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…Inishmore.
Inishmore (Árainn) is the largest of the Galway Aran Islands and is an extension of the famous limestone rocks of The Burren. The landscape of Inishmore is a patchwork of fields hemmed in by precariously balanced dry stone walls. The rugged landscape and unique culture of Inishmore and the other Aran islands has provided inspiration to artists and poets over the centuries, and W.B.Yeats famously advised J.M. Synge to ‘Go to the Aran Islands, and find a life that has never been expressed in literature’. Synge followed the advice, and it holds good for anyone wishing to experience the unique blend of landscape and culture found on the islands. It is said that a visit to Inishmore will remain in the heart for eternity.
