Our Brand

The brand has been built around the principles of using natural Irish materials (which are fully biodegradable), working with great people and having fun in the process.

Our materials are sourced along the Wild Atlantic Way and our products are made using both traditional and modern manufacturing techniques. We take huge pride in the quality of our Irish source materials that are beautiful and unique.

We are inspired by the places that we visit and the people that we meet. 

Provenance and Trust

Irish Hide Designs achieved Guaranteed Irish certification, the Irish symbol of provenance and trust, in order to offer assurances to our customers that we are who we say we are.
