#avocamoments with The Gloss: Week 4

Nov 10, 2021

Now that we can gather together and enjoy doing some of the things we love most again, we’re relishing these special moments. Getting together and laughing like old times, meeting up to enjoy a coffee and a wander, visiting favourite places and seeing favourite faces. At Avoca, we’re honoured to be a little part of your special moments and are so happy to see these cherished rituals happening once again.  

Next in our #avocamoments series with The Gloss is Dusty Boy. Avoca are delighted to be collaborating with Dusty Boy, an award-winning Irish lifestyle brand. Artists and founders Kate Rose Crean and Justin Campbell have designed a beautiful range of prints, each incorporating a little piece of the Avoca ethos and story, while simultaneously reflecting how we’re all moving through life at the moment, towards light and hope. Each piece of work is lovingly created and hand-finished from their home studio in Wexford. “When we think of Avoca, we think about colour, nature, homemaking, celebrating, comfort, crafting, flowers, sharing moments, and connecting.  All of which resonates so deeply with us.  And that was exactly where we rooted this collection,” says Kate Rose.   

The prints are designed to reflect those things – home, nature, connectedness – that have renewed meaning post-pandemic.  Some reference weaving, knitting, stitching, wool, trees, roots, and branches reflecting the origins of Avoca.  Others depict life's occasions ... new adventures, love, loss, celebrations.  

Among the collection is ‘’In The Bare Winter Wood’’ print, specially designed to support our partnership with St Patrick’s Mental Health Services, with all profits of this print going directly to St Patrick’s Mental Health Walk in My Shoes campaign. Available online & in select Avoca stores.
