Rothlú Batik Earrings
Rothlú batik earrings in gold, purple and black
Sgraffito batik textile triangles. They are finished with a high gloss sheen and measure 9cm in length.
The earring wires are hypo-allergenic rose gold plated.
Rothlú earrings are as detailed on the back as on the front, so they look wonderful from every angle.
Ultra-lightweight handmade earrings created using batik and shibori surface patterns on textured pressed cotton rag textile or 100% silk. Precious metal leaf and shimmer/hologram and mirror elements adorn Rothlú's batik pieces. All their silk pieces are coloured with carefully selected hand applied dyes to optimise the stunning gradations of hues that can be achieved with shibori techniques.
Handmade in Ireland
Rothlú pieces are made and designed by visual artist/maker Frances McGonigle in small bespoke quantities at her Ox Mountain studio in rural Mayo, Ireland. The Ox are low pre-ice age mountains with a wealth of megalithic tombs and wonderfully diverse landscape formations, textures and flora, all of which influence the patterning and dyeing that forms the basis of Rothlú's textile jewellery.
The processes, contemporary batik and shibori techniques, result in super-lightweight lusciously hued jewellery that is modern, unique and beautiful.
Rothlú only use remnant material, some of which is recent waste off-cuts/dead-stock, some of which is older much-used and repaired linens/cottons and silk. And finish their pieces using eco pine resin. All packaging is recycled/recyclable. Their aim is to be as sustainable in their making as possible.
