A limited-edition Irish linen table runner by our friend, award-winning textile artist Jennifer Slattery. Measuring 200cm in length, the beautiful embroidery is centred on this runner made from a heavy-duty, quality Irish linen.
The design is inspired by time spent at the Herbarium in the Botanical Gardens in Dublin drawing and photographing dried plants, which have been collected for centuries and are now catalogued. Over a million species are carefully stored here, some as whole, roots intact. There is a sense of the collectors who attentively gathered these plants, their hand written description of where and when the species was found, many dating back around two hundred years.
This runner would make a really beautiful gift with the matching embroidered linen napkins from Jennifer's herbarium collection, available here.
-This table runner is part of a limited edition of 100 pieces. Each is boxed beautifully and numbered by Jennifer. Dimensions: Length: 200cm x Width: 45cm.
Care: To care for your table linen, wash at 30 degrees, and steam iron while damp for a crisp finish.
