The Framed Saint Brigid’s Cross is handmade in Ireland from rushes harvested from the River Shannon. Traditionally the St. Brigid’s Crosses were placed over entrance doors to protect the house. Nowadays they are placed within contemporary interiors to enhance the appearance of the room.
The material behind the cross has been especially chosen to complement the appearance of the cross, while maintaining sufficient contrast to ensure the handwoven cross is the focal point of this exquisite product.
The back of this Framed Saint Brigid Cross features a bracket that can be used to wall mount the cross.
The cross arrived today in perfect condition and right on time. It is truly lovely. I purchased it as a gift and I’m pretty sure they are going to like it as much as I do.
Breda Holton –
I recently purchased a Saint Brigid’s Cross (mounted in box frame’. I had a relative visiting from US and wished to give her a gift returning home. I wanted to get something synonymous with Ireland but was conscious of both cost and size/weight, given that she was travelling back to US. I found this gift suitable on so many levels: St. Brigid is an integral part of our Irish history, the gifts are inexpensive, small, well wrapped and ‘travel well’ . Also, I ordered online and I found the site very user friendly. My package arrived within two days and was wrapped to perfection. The complimentary gift card is an excellent finishing touch. I would highly recommend these gifts/this site.
