Irish brands at Shoppe Objet

We look at the Irish talent on show at Shoppe Objet, New York’s showcase of the most exciting crafts and creatives across the world, from August 10 to 12 at Pier 36 on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.


One of the most influential and exciting trade shows in America, Shoppe Objet is renowned for its considered and unique collection of designers. This year, six Irish brands have been selected to take part, giving each a chance to meet buyers, international press and other makers. Here are the brands flying the Irish flag this weekend.

Irish brands at Shoppe Objet

Copperfish Lighting Company

Made from salvaged and reclaimed wood, Copperfish‘s unique lights are hand crafted by Eoin Shanley and his team in their Co Wicklow studio. Combining vintage aesthetics with a contemporary approach, its range includes everything from statement overhead lights like the one above down to small table lamps.

Field Apothecary

With scents inspired by the most Irish of smells: Peat, Hay, Lichen, Ivy and Flora, it’s hard to find a range of candles that feels so quintessentially native to our island. Alix Mulholland and her small team work from and old mushroom factory outside Lisburn, where they create these scents from blends of essential oils, before they are blended with sox wax.

Caulfield Country Boards

Run by brother and sister team Louise and Pearse Caulfield, this company produces a range of boards and other wooden products that are handmade with sustainability as a key focus. These striped boards, for example, were designed to up-cycle and transform the many off-cuts of wood they found themselves with.

Hanna Hats

This company has been making products from traditional Irish tweed in Donegal since 1924. Today the business is run by the third generation of Hannas, the founder’s granddaughters Amanda Jane and Eleanor, but each hat is still handmade in Donegal.
