Monica and Mauricio are a husband and wife team. Their paths crossed in Mauricio’s native country, Chile, back in 1987. They have been together ever since and have created both a family and a family-run business. Mauricio’s love for lines and curves and Monica’s passion for colour and flare come through in both the slate and natural skincare sides to their business. The material they use is slate that comes from the roof of some Irish building. They breathe new life into this otherwise defunct material and transform it into a beautiful and decorative piece for your home and garden. They both live and work at the entrance into the wonderful Charleville Castle. They manage to blend home and recreation with work and industry at the Gate Lodge. Come and meet them in their very old 1860 lodge and be prepared to be enthralled
