THE Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI) has launched DesignIreland.ie – a new web platform dedicated to showcasing the work of Ireland’s leading designers and craftspeople.

The site aims to provide consumers the world over with inspiration, images and stories about talented Irish designers and their work.

Visitors can browse Irish products across three categories – Home & Gift, Fashion & Accessories and Jewellery – and then link directly to purchase from maker websites or approved stockists such as Arnotts, the Kilkenny Group, Brown Thomas, Irish Design Shop, Makers & Brothers and Stonechat, as well as international retailers including Heal’s, The New Craftsmen and Wolf & Badger in the UK, The Citizenry in the US, and Stor in Tokyo.

Karen Hennessy, chief executive of DCCoI, said: “This new site forms part of DCCoI’s strategic goal to increase awareness of Irish design and craft at home and abroad, capitalising on the growing international reputation of the sector in recent years.

“Design Ireland has been developed as a premium brand to celebrate and champion the wonderful contemporary work being produced all over the island of Ireland.

“We hope consumers will be inspired to seek out and purchase unique Irish-designed and made work throughout the year, but particularly over the coming weeks as they shop for gifts this Christmas.”
