My name is Karla and this is the story about "Behind The Seams Ireland"
The "Behind The Seams" started officially at the end of June 2020. By that time I had 1100 masks handmade and given free of charge to Nursing homes and other places and other people that needed masks, and also had 10 years behind me in designing my own clothes and clothes for my friends. The idea of making things, being creative has driven me all my life, and now with this whole lockdown situation I finally had the time to fulfill this dream and so friends stepped up and helped. My wonderful partner made everything he possibly could to accommodate and support me in every step of the way and as it happens to me in life occasionally everything fell into place. We rented a gorgeous space in the centre of Dublin City and jumped into action.
We have only a few goals but they are mighty for us. We want to be within a year fully sustainable and we want to be able to make a great range of specially designed pieces for everyone, from adults to kids and pets.
We are sourcing all of our materials locally from Irish businesses mostly and hopefully, soon we will be exclusively just Irish made and sourced.
We are committing ourselves to always support other local businesses and to have an open heart for charitable work.
