Ideas for Father's Day:

Foxford Michael Collins Throw 

€185


Description: In early 1922, Foxford Woollen Mills presented a specially commissioned Travel Blanket to General Michael Collins to mark his appointment to Commander in Chief of the newly established Irish Army.  The blanket was in his armoured car at the ambush at Beall Na Blath in August 1922.  It was recovered at Shanakiel Hospital by Nurse Nora O'Donaghue and later donated to the National Museum. Foxford Woollen Mills have reproduced the blanket in conjunction with the Michael Collins House, Clonakilty, Co. Cork. The blanket is in olive, gold and white in a Melange yarn, using a traditional Foxford check.  A vintage 4 ply yarn was used for the weaving similar to the quality wool used in the early part of the last century resulting in a very warm sturdy blanket 

 

reuzi Stainless Steel Razor Dark Grey 

€30


Description: reuzi loves self-care! 

Composition 100% brass! Brass is corrosion-proof. Solid and resistant, it is perfect to create long-lasting metal razors. Brass ensures a perfectly weighted balance that will help you achieve a close and smooth shave. It is important to note that brass does not contain nickel initially. Still, there could be traces of it, so watch out and do the test if you are allergic to nickel. 

Impact Single-use plastic has invaded our bathroom! Over time, we have become used to the fact that most of our bathroom products contain plastic. However, this material is rarely fully recyclable.
