Spotlight: Placed

I recently came across Belfast-maker Placed on etsy, and I am so taken with them and their goods. This is their store message:
"Fáilte, welcome to our shop. Everything you see below is handmade in our Belfast studio. Most things will be adorned with an Irish/Gaelic word, we love the fact we have a language all our own here, but are full of dismay that it's rarely used and we ourselves are not fluent. The items we make are like 'prompts' if you like, which we use around the house to remind us of our culture, individuality and unique identity and we hope that all those of you who have also fallen in love with this ever-so-green land, will place them around your home too."

I'm totally smitten with their contemporary and uncheesy designs. It seems the only Irish I hear on this side of the Atlantic is "Erin Go Brath!" or "Póg mo thóin" (kiss my arse), but maybe if I gift these bags, napkins, cards, and linen hearts, we'll all have an excuse to speak a little more Irish. Great gift (they'll even personalize), and I seriously grá (love) the clean and simple designs.
