Working from his studio in Rathmines, Dublin, Ireland, Brendan Joseph creates timeless wearable stories.

Led by Irish artist Brendan Joseph, we create woven stories of Ireland, distilling our landscape into luxury scarves and accessories, recognized worldwide for their timeless quality and beauty.

Our scarves, shawls, bow ties, neckties, and pocket squares are handmade at our Dublin studio from the finest silk, linen & cashmere, woven exclusively for each of our products in Ireland and the British Isles.

The purchasing experience is enhanced online and in- store with immersive videos, transporting the viewer directly to each story’s unique source. Exquisite gift packaging accompanies each piece, containing a card that tells its story, in poetry and imagery.

Using a proprietary methodology, our newest weave structure embodies the incredible dance of light on water, inspired by Ireland's position 'at the edge of the world'. As natural light touches their braille-like silk & linen surfaces, these pieces awaken, changing colour.

 

The Brendan Joseph line of handmade scarves, bow ties and woven wearable art explores and distills the play of landscape and light in nature.

Each piece is handcrafted in Ireland in the natural fibres of Cashmere, Silk & Linen.

I began as a hand-weaver and then scaled this methodology into mill-woven commercial lines, and after two years of research, began test marketing in late 2013, with my commercial operation launching in 2015 at the Showcase Ireland Trade Fair. 

My 'Dublin From The Hills' woven silk scarf was purchased by the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland and presented as the official gift to President Higgins during the opening ceremony.  As part of the year of Irish Design 2015, my work was showcased in all three Doyle Collection hotels in London, and was included in the ID2015 Flagship exhibition 'Liminal', which exhibited in Milan, New York and Eindhoven.

My work is included in the National Craft Portfolio, and has been featured in all major national publications including Sunday Independent, Irish Times, as well as Cara Magazine, Architectural Digest (USA), Sunday Times (UK), and has been featured on RTÉ Nationwide.
