Áras Hanging Plant Pot

€45

by Irish Design Shop

Home & Gifts, Planters & Vases

A simple, beautifully made plant pot, thrown on the potter’s wheel in terracotta clay and glazed in a creamy slip. Part of a series from potter Helen Faulkner for Irish Design Shop, the straight lines of each form gives a base for plants to really stand out against the earthy red clay. Each pot is individually finished with Helen’s hand scribed linear pattern which adds texture and character, glazed on the inside and stamped with Helen's makers mark. The sisal twine compliments the earthy tones and is strong enough to support the weight of the potted plant.

Sheepskin Rug

€100

by Irish Design Shop

Home & Gifts, Soft Furnishings

Sourced from sheep in the west of Ireland, these sheepskin rugs are ideal for the floor, or thrown over a chair. The therapeutic properties of the natural sheepskin are plentiful; the natural hollow fibers act allows the rug to control body temperatures without overheating, making it perfect for pain relief and warmth. The sheepskins are also naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, as the lanolin in the wool has a self-cleaning quality which prevents bacterial growth.
