Designer Spotlight: Rothlú
Posted by THE COLLECTIVE
Rothlú Jewellery is made by Frances McGonigle, in the Ox Mountains, County Mayo, Ireland.
As Frances explains,
“My surroundings are full of textures and hues: my colourful lightweight jewellery is certainly inspired by all of these elements.”
Rothlú jewellery is patterned using Batik, Sgraffito and Shibori processes.
“We generally work with batik (using wax as a resist) on cotton/linens, and shibori (using clamping and pleating as the resist) on silk. With batik we use two techniques: tjanting- essentially “drawing” with wax, and sgraffito- where we scratch into the wax before applying dyes.”
Ezrine Batik Textile Necklace: €37.00
“Sometimes we mix two or all these techniques into one piece. One thing is certain, these methods allow for types of dyeing that yield stunning colours: some intense and luminous, others gentler and softer. Our colour palette is always evolving!”
Beulah Batik Textile Earrings: €43.00
