Farraige

Farraige

Farraige is the first design in the Summer Memories Collection.

“Farraige” means ocean in Irish and draws her inspiration not only from the ocean, but also the dreamy nostalgic air that summer time brings.

Just like the ocean, Farraige has a soothing but constant ebb and flow to her design. Farraige features gently flowing increases, which crest like a wave, and decreases which flow down until they trickle out like waves running up the beach. The oceans continuous rippling, rolling motion is reflected in Farraige by the play of elongated stitches, which add swells and waves within the fabric. This, coupled with fringe edging, adds a fluidic, water-like feel to Farraige, and finishes off her enchanting, whimsical feel.
