1916 GPO Print one of the print selected by the National Museum of Ireland in2016. NMI acquired 3 of Jennifer Rothwell prints for the National Collection of Contemporary Applied Art. The Madeline shirt dress, GPO 1916 and Book of Kells inspired scarves. See Quote from Alex Ward Curator of Dress and Textiles, National Museum of Ireland: Decorative Arts and History "In choosing pieces from Jennifer Rothwell’s collections, I felt that these particular designs would beautifully complement and enhance the existing collections at the National Museum of Ireland in that they represent a very contemporary interpretation of Irish events and movements from a century ago. Jennifer’s Kells print is a modern reimagining of ancient motifs that were popular during the Celtic Revival and her reworking of Harry Clarke designs recalls the best of the Irish Arts and Crafts movement. By incorporating the GPO into a new print Rothwell commemorates the 1916 Rising in a very unique way. Produced using up-to-the minute digital print technology these vibrant pieces evoke our past and at the same time represent contemporary Irish design"

Mist and Moonshine - Inspired by the "The Elf-hill Illustration The uplifting colourful print from my new collection is called "Mist and Moonshine" and is inspired by my muse Harry Clarke "Elf on the Hill" illustration for the fairytale collection from 1916 Hans Christian Andersen. The Elf-hill is a fairy tale about a feast held by the Elf King, in his mound, for the Gnome Chief of Norway and his two sons. The Elf King's daughters, paraded before the guests as potential brides, display their talents. 'The elf girls…danced with shawls which were woven of mist and moonshine.' "The Elf-hill is one of eleven illustrations in the National Gallery of Ireland’s collection produced by the Dublin-born stained glass artist and book illustrator Harry Clarke for Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales. The Gallery is fortunate to have this collection of original drawings by one of the leading figures in the Irish Arts and Crafts Movement.

Humming Bird Print Silk Head band The inspiration behind the SS13 Hummingbird collection came about when Jennifer visited Paris fabric trade shows. Jennifer viewed hundreds of prints but was unable to source one that she loved and knew then that it was now time to develop her own prints, a long-held desire. The Hummingbird Digital Print was designed and developed under Jennifer’s direction in Dublin, Ireland and is exclusive to Jennifer Rothwell. Bold and adventurous whilst being vibrant and colourful the hummingbird print displays dozens of birds flying in several directions in the bright cobalt blue sky. The main colours in the fabric are cobalt blue, bright Windsor red orange and teal green. The bird itself consists of a beautiful array of colors. Dark and pale teal colours are in the main body of the bird, the wings are turquoise and royal blue while the tips of the wings are a vibrant Windsor red orange. According to Jennifer, “Everybody needs vibrant color in their lives. Color inspires the spirit and soul and elevates one from the doom and gloom of everyday life. We can escape by the choice of clothing that we decide to wear! "Jennifer Rothwell’s new humming bird silk digital print is wearable art. “Be bold and adventurous and escape the mundane by wearing a beautiful Hummingbird Silk Print,” says Jennifer.

This lightweight and caressing Cashmere Modal scarf is the essential accessory to uplift your outfit. Jennifer was inspired for this print by St. Brigid, Ireland’s first female saint. Brigid was named after one of the most powerful goddesses in the Pagan religion - the goddess of fire, whose manifestations were song, craftsmanship and poetry. The print’s color scheme was heavily informed by Harry Clarke’s St Brigid Stained -glass window at St. Mary’s Church in Ballinnrobe, Co Mayo, Ireland. With this scarf, you will wear a piece of stunning art, inspired by Irish heritage and culture.

Kells Space Mythology The inspiration of the Kells Space Mythology print Collection came to fruition from Jennifer's desire to bring Irish Celtic Design into 21st century. Jennifer researched design elements inspired by the book of Kells and found them all very literal with muted colours. She was also inspired by outer space and was fascinated with the sheer beauty of the patterns and colours of the cosmos. She then decided to fuse the two together. Ironically the peacock bird used in the print is seen as a messenger between heaven and earth. This design was acquired by the National Museum of Ireland in 2016 for their Celtic Revival Collection. Very importantly our masks are sustainable with 0% waste and are Printed and Made In Ireland. Buying our masks also helps the local Irish economy.
