Additional information 

“I’m Catherine, weaver and designer of Bofin Weaves creations. Living on an island, I’m spoiled with colours to inspire my weaving. My grandfather was a tailor and sailmaker on the island and use to say…”beauty us all around us, even in the simplest of things ” . So I turn to my island and all its beauty big or small, and incorporate it in my creations …leaving a piece of Inishbofin with each item woven.”
