OUR STORY

Niamh Designs was founded by Niamh McCarthy, after she graduated with a first class honours degree in Textile Art, Design and Fashion from Belfast College of Art in 2017. Niamh spends her days designing and embroidering beautiful things for life's special occasions - and loves every second! 

Niamh Designs is based in Lurgan, which is situated on the shores of Lough Neagh in Northern Ireland. 

 

Originally inspired by Irish heritage, Niamh began to design a range of embroidered Family Trees to form her first collection, and exhibited these in various shows across the UK & Ireland including The Wedding Journal Showcase & The Knit & Stitch Show.

Moving a little further afield Niamh began to create other embroidered gifts including Family Crests, Baby Gifts and Custom Jackets.

Great time, care and skill goes into each of her creations - Her mission is to create truly unique pieces that can be passed down to future generations.
