We are a small family run business based in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. It is run with a mission to promote a plastic free, organic lifestyle that is kind to the planet. Over the past while we have slowly been replacing plastic products with more sustainable ones that are made ethically and will decompose naturally when they have reached the end of their life cycle.

PAINTED CLANS – In 2011 my New Jersey cousin Mary Carlson came to Ireland to explore the history of our ancestors. Not wanting to disappoint, my family hurried to research how my two great uncles Hugh & Barney McCarey came to travel to America. My Dad and Aunt guided Mary through the Monaghan countryside reminisceing about the “old days”. We did leave one stone unturned, the meaning behind the McCarey coat of arms. On deciding what to give Finbar & Shona as a wedding gift I thought back to my parents coat of arms plaque which hung in their front hallway. After doing some research into both family crests and sketching out a few ideas, Painted Clans was born.

RAWSAOLRawsaol is a project developed by Brendan McCarey & James Cleary a pair who initially became friends over the garden wall. Summer evenings with family and friends were illuminated with open fires and this began their search for a functional long lasting fire pit that was portable and easy to store. With James’s background in industrial design and Brendan’s in craft design, they designed and tested prototypes to create an aesthetically functional fire pit. Through the process they also created a range of useful objects for everyday life, with functional design and symmetry as their mantra.

QUIRKY IRISH ICONS – Quirky Irish Icons was set up by Patricia Pierce (that’s me) in 2014. It all started when my adored nephew moved to Dubai. He loved his new home but he really missed all of those things that you can only get in Ireland. Like real Irish butter and batch loaf or a lovely homemade Dublin Coddle. But most of all, he missed his Ma and his Da. I set about trying to find him something that would remind him of home, something that could easily be posted, and something that was a bit quirky and had a bit of character. After searching high and low to no avail, I decided to what all Irish women do when we want a job done right – do it yourself!
