Caitríona's been manning the Fiain pop-up shop quite a bit lately, allowing me to concentrate on getting through the last of the wholesale orders for the year.

Having said that, i love doing runs to the shop to see how things are going. It's a cute little shop i have to say, probably the smallest in Galway, but it's been just perfect for us. It's cosy, warm, inviting & we've managed to pull off the industrial chic look that we so love (and have seen others start to copy). We've also managed to stock it exclusively with our own products, which i suppose has shown how much we've accelerated since we started this adventure only 2 years ago.

Anyhow, the purpose of this blog post, let's get back on track! Went into the shop this morning to clean the windows (they get mank so quickly after it rains; what's with that). Guess who always wants to come with me, yeah you guessed it..


Biskit is our cockapoo & Fiain mascot. She's way to clever for her own good, and constantly get's stopped by gushing passerby's who want to pet her. You should have seen her when she was a puppy, we did our walks on Salthill promenade & we couldn't go 5 paces without being stopped!

She's sporting a fab FIÁIN bandana in black, well she's got to pay her way!

So i got a chance today take a pic of my 2 x favourite ladies:)

Taking a break helps us put things in perspective too, clear the head & reminds us to see the bigger picture & what’s more important in life. ⁣

Suffice to say, we completely stay away from low grade ‘genuine leather’ and instead use the very best ‘full grain’ Italian leather.

For a change divert your eyes from the horizon, get down on your knees (if you’re still able) and take a closer look at the macro world around us.
