‘Sealed with Irish Love’ is a creation of creative Irish gifts and homeware for people looking for a flavour of Ireland in their homes. With a mixture of hand-drawn traditional Irish imagery combined with bold, geometric patterns; the designs provoke a reminder of Ireland past and present.
Máire McKeogh launched ‘Sealed with Irish Love’ in November 2013. Máire traces her passion for all things Irish back to growing up in the west of Ireland where every inch of surroundings within a six mile radius was explored. The Irish designs such as the windswept hawthorn tree; old Irish bicycle; village water pump and bird feathers which can be seen on the product range are inspired by these ramblings and many road trips around the country since.
While working abroad for a number of years in an environmental consultancy in London, Máire realised that something as basic as receiving a card from Ireland or any Irish gift can pull at your heartstrings and make you feel like you are back in the homeland.
Upon her return to Ireland, this nostalgia for her Irish surroundings combined with a background in interior design inspired Máire to design and create ‘Sealed with Irish Love’. The products can be seen in Irish gift houses and Irish shops throughout the country amongst many other beautiful Irish textiles and Irish ceramics. The product range extends to fine bone china mugs, 100% cotton Irish tea towels, cork backed coasters, Irish stationary and Irish gift boxes.
Fresh, cultural and nostalgic, this new Irish brand evokes fond memories and celebrates the generosity and love of Irish friends and families.
