5 Irish Etsy Shops You'll Love
I love Etsy. I first bought a print on Etsy about a year ago and it has been a dangerous love affair ever since! From prints, cards, personalised gifts and all sorts of things for the home, I'm truly hooked. It's also great to see so many new, Irish designers popping up on Etsy lately. So why not show some love to our homegrown talent and take a peak at some of these amazing Irish Etsy shops:
Irish artist Rachel Corcoran describes her illustrations as original, handmade & earth-friendly products with both a contemporary and vintage vibe. These unique hand-lettered quotes and illustrations will add colour and fun to any space with their uplifting and fashionable presence. Rachel doesn't use any computer fonts, all of the lettering is created by hand and bespoke to her etsy store.
With a goal to help the environment as much as she can, while creating inspiring and thoughtful pieces of art all of Rachel's creations are done on ecologically friendly Fabriano paper, or 100% recycled pastel paper. And the tote bags are certified by SKAL and certified Fair Trade. View the entire collection here.
