Distilling precious moments and beautiful places, Brendan Joseph makes each scarf, shawl & bow-tie by hand in Ireland, the home of his inspiration, working in silk, cashmere and linen. The colours in each scarf are the result of an innovative design methodology by which Brendan draws his inspiration directly from scenes and sources in the environment around him – the vibrant city of Dublin and the beautiful natural landscapes of Ireland. Brendan’s passion for colour, pattern, quality and craftsmanship is clear in his work as he explores, distils and translates what he sees in the world around him into his handmade scarves.
Although the colours in his designs are drawn purely from nature, they bring out the unusual and the unnoticed - the intensely vibrant lichen on warm grey rocks by the soft- blue sea at Sandymount Strand, or the speckled pink and blue of the Georgian and Victorian architecture in the area around his studio.
