The Sailor's Swallow

Swallows were revered symbols of hope and a safe return home for sailors, as their sighting often indicated the proximity of land or fair weather during long sea voyages.

These particular pieces are inspired by Sailor Jerry, the tattoo artist, whose iconic swallow tattoos symbolise the spirit of adventure and the free-spirited lifestyle of sailors.

Starboard means Right on a boat, and Port means Left.

Each piece is completely unique, and made here in Ireland. 

Size: 16cm diameter

Embroidered Hoop Art

Nautical and Adventure-Themed Hand Embroideries

Transform your space with exquisite hand-embroidered hoop art. Each piece is a unique work of art, meticulously crafted using a beech hoop, unbleached cotton or linen as a base, and a blend of silky cotton threads and bright embroidery floss. Some designs include an acrylic painted fabric base, adding an extra layer of texture and colour, while others incorporate left-over wool from the wool wear collection for added depth and character. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind artwork - no two are the same!

Inspired by my life aboard my boat, these embroideries capture the spirit of the sea and the joy of adventure, expeditions and exploring!

 Whether you’re looking to add a distinctive decorative element to a room, a table, or any special nook, these embroidered artworks are a perfect choice.
