The Owl Tree

Unique, Irish, Handmade Gifts
Imagined, Designed, Created

The Owl Tree is located along the famous, Wild Atlantic Way in the beautiful west of Ireland.

 


The seed for The Owl Tree was ‘sewn’ in Ireland over 100 years ago. My mum learned the delicate art of Celtic embroidery and the skills of colour shading in The Dun Emer Guild. 

As a young child I helped design and make all sorts of exciting toys from coloured fabric and yarns. This magic of creating toys and cherished belongings lives on. These treasures, which are beloved in many children’s nurseries, are what memories are made of.

The skills live on as my daughter, Emer, has joined The Owl Tree and brought a modern twist!

These blankets are made using super soft fleece in a variety of colours and adding an appliqué farmyard friend and flower. 

The colours in these blankets are so cheery and bright, they will brighten up any dull day.

Each blanket is one of a kind and has been finished by hand, giving the farmyard friend a personality of their own!

The hedgerows and gardens of Connemara are the source of many of the real flowers used in these cards. 

The flowers are collected in Spring and early Summer, then pressed and used to create unique cards.
