About Superfolk

We are designers and makers. We design and make simple, beautiful and sustainable home goods for lovers of the wild outdoors. We tell the story of the ever-changing colour, patterns and texture of the wildlife, wild food, landscape, geology and seasons surrounding us in Clew Bay, on the west coast of Ireland.

For over twenty-five years (combined) we have been working professionally in the overlap of art, architecture, craft and design. This rich, blended background brings a sharing of expertise, knowledge and skills to our team. We first met while at art college in 2005 and have been collaborating professionally since 2008.

We believe …

Home matters. We all need a place to be ourselves, to be open, creative, free and at ease. Home is a place for belonging, not perfection.

When something is enjoyable to make, this care, love and playfulness shines through in the end result. The materials we surround ourselves with matter.

Positive social and environmental change will be led by a passion that spreads and propelled by facts and actions of integrity.
