We love the Dublin based retail venture Makers & Brothers. Not only for the gorgeous products but also because of their focus on sustainability, simplicity and good craftsmanship. The two brothers, Jonathan and Mark Legge, founded the company with a belief in simple, beautiful and nicely odd products. They consider the craft to be a process, which is something that can be seen throughout their stunning decor collection. Now if you’re after something super budget friendly, M&B might not be for you; a lot of their stuff is reasonably priced while some of it is a little more high-end. But when it comes to gorgeous gifts and keepsakes you’ll treasure forever and absolutely fall in love with, they’re among the best in the country.
Besides products from interior brands such as Georg Jensen, Hay, Ferm Living, Jerpoint, Mourne Textiles and many others, Makers & Brothers also produce their own impeccable products. Here are some of the most eye-catching products that are totally GAFF approved.
