The silk route

RTÉ Guide - - Contents - with Jess O Sul­li­van

Ir­ish de­signer Geral­dine Leonard has a gift for turn­ing tex­tiles into mini works of art that rep­re­sent the nat­u­ral beauty she finds around her home in En­niskerry, Co Wick­low. She turns earthy bogs, sun­set skies, fields of heather and wild­flow­ers, and the waves of the Ir­ish Sea into ab­stract pieces us­ing cash­mere, mo­hair and silk. There are three dif­fer­ent size op­tions, start­ing from as lit­tle as €25 for a 100% silk print, and you can also or­der the print in a solid wood frame, lo­cally sourced. Soon Leonard will be ad­ding a luxe new cush­ion col­lec­tion to the mix fea­tur­ing her stun­ning de­signs. See the full col­lec­tion at geraldinel­eonard.com.
