Last week the Irish Design Crafts Council chose to launch their #MADELOCAL campaign at our store with Tánaiste Leo Varadkar and actor and writer Amy Huberman. This great initiative is part of a renewed focus on the importance of supporting Irish makers and retailers to keep craftspeople in business during these tricky times. The Made Local campaign will run until the end of summer with over 100 shops participating in supporting the work of DCCI’s 3,000 makers in Ireland.
Amy spoke about the campaign to RTE "Following a very difficult few months due to Covid-19, it is important to make a conscious effort to help local craft businesses in Ireland. Our country is full of some of the most talented designers and craftspeople in the world and we are so lucky to have such beautiful produce right here on this island. We would like to encourage consumers to think before they shop and give our local makers a chance to thrive over the coming months,". You can read more here.
Look out for DCCI Made Local symbols around the city to find your Irish makers and pop into us in the Westbury Mall just off Grafton Street. Sonia got to chat to The Irish Times in a camera interview about our story and the work of Irish makers, check it out here.

The Travel Mask:
At this time we only produce in 1 size, Medium. Currently, we are NOT able to produce in Large due to production limitations during the COVID-19 lockdown. These are adult sizes only. We do not currently make masks for children.
We recommended mask size selection dimensions based on average face ratios. A women’s faces tends to be smaller than a man’s face so typically women will require a Medium and men will require a Large. We do recommend you check the size required by following our measuring guide below before ordering.
The dimensions of The Travel Mask are -
Medium: 23.5cm wide and 12.5cm high
Large: 26.5cm wide x 14.5cm high
So to select your size use this guide - with a measuring tape, measure the distance across the middle of your face over the tip of your nose to within 2cm from each ear. Next measure the distance between your chin to the bridge of your nose.
For Medium Travel masks -
Cross face measurements will be between 25cm and 28cm. Chin to the bridge of nose measurements will be between 10cm and 13cm.
For Large Travel Masks -
Cross face measurements will be between 28cm and 31cm. Chin to the bridge of nose measurements will be between 13cm and 16cm.
