"The Green and Red of Mayo"


Celebrate Mayo who are through to the All Ireland Final on 11th September with this beautiful tactile piece by Karena Ryan. A highly unique and different gift . 

'The Green and Red of Mayo' is inspired by the lyrics of a Sawdoctors song of the same name and pays tribute to the colours of County Mayo.

All made by hand and sewing machine by Karena in her studio in Tuam, County Galway using her vintage typewriter, linen, brocade, Donegal tweed and sari fabric. Glass beads in vibrant greens and reds have been hand stitched onto the piece which sits in a 4 inch embroidery hoop in a shadow box wooden frame measuring 26 x 26 cm. 

This piece is also available to purchase in Caffrey's Gallery in Ballina, County Mayo.


* please note that because each piece is made to order using repurposed fabrics there may be slight variations of tweeds used.
