Makers & Brothers, a curation of everyday design and craft founded in 2011 by brothers Jonathan and Mark Legge is coming to Brown Thomas for four weeks as a Pop Up shop.

Running from now until 6th May, you can check out authentic handmade objects by Irish textile designer Claire-Anne O’Brien, whose Knitted Irish Animals (€62) are set to be a hit – there’s ‘Brigid the Sheep’, ‘Fionn the Fox’ and ‘Liam the Hare’ which have been knitted and assembled by hand using thick luxury Irish wool from Kilcar, Co. Donegal.

Studio Donegal’s tweed cushions (€48) offer a contemporary interpretation of the traditional ‘Snail Trail’ pattern while there are wooden iPhone cases from Donal Moloney (€39) and Matt Jones’ hand turned spalted Irish beech wood keepsake baby rattle (€49), which would make an ideal gift for new-born babies.

There’s 31 Chapel Lane’s baby boots (€26) made from  Irish Linen and Donegal tweed and James Carroll’s  gouged stool collection (€110) which uses locally sourced Birch and Ash wood and offers a classic shape with three legs and a wonderful gouged top surface –  the natural features of each piece of wood ensure that each stool looks unique.

The shop, housed in a ‘shed’ in Brown Thomas Dublin will host Makers & Brothers interactive events with Jonathan and Mark Legge on:
•    Saturday, 13th April and Sunday, 14th April: Customise and build a Gouged stool
•    Saturday, 20th April and Sunday, 21st April: Laser engrave your wooden iPhone case
•    Saturday, 27th April and Sunday, 28th April: Meet maker Claire-Anne O’Brien and tag your very own Knitted Irish Animals featuring ‘Brigid the Sheep’, ‘Fionn the Fox’ and ‘Liam the Hare’
