Kaidean Aromas

Explore our collection of hand-poured vegan wax melts. We use only soy wax. Our fragrances are vegan friendly. Most of our materials are sourced within Ireland. Our artisan designers uniquely make every item to bring a beautiful scent to any indoor space. Our wax melts are highly scented.

Iveragh Drums

Handmade Eco Drums, which are fully Vegan. 10 and 13-inch diameter frame drums made with recycled marine waste materials. The laced tightening system so that these drums can be tightened to your desired tone by you. The drums don’t react to getting wet like animals’ skin drums. I hand-paint the designs, which are all individual, so you buy a piece of art when you buy a drum with a design on the skin.

Giulia Coli – ARTIST

Born in Italy, now living in Ireland, she completely changed her field to mechanical engineering. Out of love she moved to Ireland where nature and above all the cows stole her heart. The call of art cannot be ignored for long so she has returned to the brush. She uses acrylics on recycled canvases, the stretch is repetitive and for her it is like a meditation. The purpose of my paintings is to steal a smile when people look at them, art has to be fun!’’

Diary of an Activist by Orla Egan

Diary of an Activist is an intergenerational collaboration between activist and writer Orla Egan and artist Megan Luddy O’Leary. The beautifully illustrated story brings to light a history of activism that has previously been hidden, making it accessible and engaging. Diary of An Activist is a social activism memoir journeying through vegetarianism, anti-nuclear and CND protests, feminist and queer activism, lesbian parties, coming out and becoming a parent. It features quirky Cork locations like the Quay Co-op and Loafer’s Bar. It provides a unique insight into activism in Ireland in an era before mobile phones, computers and social media. It features gestetner machines, badge making machines and newspaper pages clipped to a clothes line. It includes both a trip to Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp and a trip on a pony over a mountain just to make a phone call in the local pub.
