The Souvenir Project was commissioned by Irish Design 2015 earlier this year. Produced by Makers & Brothers - "From the outset we wanted to create a project with meaning and depth that softly spoke of our time and place. We looked to explore new ground as well as revisiting old. The aim was to investigate the thinking behind the term souvenir and what it might mean today in an Irish context. For Makers & Brothers it has been about delicately filtering all this thinking through the local context and embracing the subtleties of the land, weather, histories and people."
