“we met sonia + francie in new york just a few months ago – a ‘wee’ booth with a lot of ‘WOW’. 2 minutes + we knew we just ‘had to have’ STABLE’s linen scarves + throws in the shop.” firstname.lastname@example.org
Artefact Home | Garden is thrilled to introduce:
spinning irish traditions into contemporary luxury
luxurious throws | fantastic scarves | 100% irish linen | handcrafted
Irish linen is as much a symbol the Emerald Isle as the Shamrock. Industrious men and women across the country and throughout the ages have perfected their skill in spinning linen yarns as well as weaving and knitting fabrics of unparalleled quality.
Former fashion mavens, Sonia Reynolds and Francie Duff of STABLE, have turned their discerning eyes and elegant sensibilities to Ireland’s rich textile heritage. They have connected with weavers, artisans, and manufacturers all over the country to elevate the age-old Irish traditions of quality handcrafted goods to modern day luxury status. The business partners design luscious linens for both home and personal fashion and have them fabricated by the most skilled and devoted artisans of Ireland.
Sonia and Francie say that they “create rare, precious things that are thoughtfully, carefully made by people who love what they do and don’t compromise on quality.” For them this is the true meaning of luxury.
In a modern world of synthetics and micro-fibers, it’s worth being reminded of the intrinsic benefits of linen. Not only is it a renewable resource, but linen is 2-3 times stronger than cotton, naturally heat and moisture wicking, antibacterial, and it repels stains. Linen cools you down in summer + warms you up in winter – now that’s a luxury!
recognize these irish beauties? well, it’s Artefact writer Ann F’s sister Sarah (many of you know her as “the Donna” from Suits) and Sonia Reynolds of Stable….a lovely coincidence – wouldn’t you say?
