Hearts of Ireland

Adelle Hickey is an Irish Artist and Designer. Her latest project is a collection of unique and exquisite notebooks, cards and prints, inspired by the symbolism in traditional Irish Visual Culture. The stitches, designs, patterns and symbols used loops back through centuries of crafts and traditions in Irish History.

Adelle comes from generations of makers. More recently her grandmother and mother were both knitters and loved to sew. Her career in the fashion industry and her ongoing interest in Irish Material Culture further generated her intense passion for Irish Visual Culture and needlework.

Designs are created by hand and reproduced using a unique and secret technique to create an individual collection of high end exquisite stationery and prints.  Hand bound Linen notebooks become bespoke gifts enriched with needlework designs using the techniques, de-bossing and foiling.

All of Adelle’s products are made in the most sustainable way using paper linen and unbleached cotton paper.   From start to finish all the products are made locally.

Designed and made in Dublin, Ireland.
