Today the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI) launches its seasonal gifting campaign during 2015, the year of Irish design.

DCCoI is also unveiling a revamped website that is packed with an amazing array of unique gift ideas all Designed and Made in Ireland, along with information on where to buy products both online and in store.

The distinctive “Designed & Made in Ireland” thumbprint symbol (above) will assist shoppers in easily identifying genuine Irish products in the lead up to Christmas.

    This is just an anecdotal evidence, no statistical research, but still something I experienced and will keep a close eye on in the future: In the RDS Christmas Markets, stalls with this logo were far more often trying to cheat me when giving me change back than stalls without this logo. I always count my change anyways, but I will be extra careful when dealing with them again.

    Crap site… clicked on the “Where to Buy Online?” and “Where to Buy In-store?” buttons on several products…. because I saw something I liked.. and in all cases a blank window popped up. They should have probably tested the site or finished it before launching it.

    That’s a rubbish logo. They really missed a trick there by not making the thumbprint form the shape of Ireland. And it looks like tea with a dollop of milk.

    So does this mean all the those Irish ‘designers’ getting stuff produced in China will be off the list?
