Dingle Sea Salt

STABLE of Ireland

The Irish handwoven tweeds used to create The Nóirín Skirts were woven by Nóirín Pye in Dublin in the 1970s, one of Ireland’s only female hand weavers of her time.

VivaGreen

VivaGreen products are designed to allow individuals, companies and communities to substitute harmful products with environmentally friendly alternatives. The Tru Eco home cleaning range is made with natural, renewable ingredients. vivagreengroup.com

Woolow

Woolow pillows are not a fast, throwaway product, as the wool and cotton can be repurposed at the end of the pillow’s life. It’s a circular product — when you buy a wool product, you are purchasing carbon sequestered from the atmosphere one-to-two years earlier. woolow.com
