Bespoke Irish Handcrafted Gifts
Louise Carroll Designs is an Irish Craft Business based in the picturesque village of Dromahair, Co. Leitrim in the West of Ireland. Louise established the business in 2012 producing slate clocks and since then has increased the range to over two hundred different products. Those include Bespoke Handcrafted Gifts, Slate Property Signs, Awards and Presentation pieces. She caters for all occasions and can personalize all of the products.
Louise works with natural slate primarily and crafts clocks, plaques, photo frames and sculptural pieces. Recently she has expanded the materials she uses to include mirrors, timber and acrylic. Through research and testing she has found that mixing these materials produces really striking and original results.
Louise Carroll Designs is very focused on customer service and believes that this sets their business apart from other gift suppliers. Louise takes the time to get to know as much as she can about the intended recipient of the gift or award, their hobbies, families, taste in music etc. She works on a design until the customer is fully satisfied with it. When customers need a gift at short notice Louise will always do her very best to accommodate them.
Louise utilizes different tools and equipment in the making of these unique pieces. She makes everything to order so there are no conveyor belts! There are many processes employed including hand-cutting the slates, sandblasting some of them, laser engraving others and hand-painting all. Louise also provides a stand alone laser engraving service. Everything, including framing is carried out in-house.
The United Nations Training School, The Sunday Business Post and Kildare Village are some of the well known brands that have worked with Louise on various projects in the past.
Louise Carroll Designs always welcomes new projects and a lot of the current product range stemmed originally from once being asked to do something new and different. Louise is always open to using new methods and materials so if you have a piece in mind that you do not see on the website please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.
