All of LAINEY K’s work involves supporting local business and using local suppliers from the beginning of the making process, to the final delivery of the products in-store or to your door.
LAINEY K has been described as ‘the best makers in the country’ alongside Orla Kiely, Helen James and Carolyn Donnelly by The Sunday Business Post
LAINEY K is a member of the Design & Crafts Council Ireland (DCCI) – the national agency for the development of Irish designers and makers, stimulating innovation and championing design thinking in order to raise the standard and profile of Irish design and craft. Their vision is that Ireland is recognised and valued for its culture of design and craft. Hear, hear!
The Irish Made Awards are designed to shine a light on the talented makers, creators, craftspeople and producers across the island of Ireland.
An expert panel of judges from retail, media, and design fields handpick the finalists each year, who will then go forward to a live vote on irishcountrymagazine.ie. I am thrilled to say that LAINEY K has been a finalist in both 2019 and 2020.
The Design Ireland programme started in 2016 to raise the profile of Irish design and craft at home and abroad.
An independent panel of market experts from Ireland and abroad assessed brands for the Design Ireland Programme, and LAINEY K is thrilled to have been selected.
The MADE LOCAL campaign has been developed to sustain Ireland’s design and craft sector during this recovery phase due to Covid 19. It aims to inspire consumers, makers, shops and media, and celebrates Irish creativity – what’s not to love?!
