Asta Gauronskyte has been attracting a fair amount of her own publicity lately. As well as being a productive member of element15, Asta has used her creative skills to develop her own business. For many years Asta has run a successful enterprise making curtains and now she has added Old Court Linens to the brand stable. Old Court Linens make exquisite linen products using high quality organic linen and attention to detail. Asta recently received a commendation for The Best Product Award at Showcase Ireland 2017 for a very pretty and practical, linen bread bag.
The bread bags have since featured as a ‘Trending’ product in the Irish Times by Alanna Gallagher. It goes to show you that there was logic in our grandmothers wrapping the bread in a linen tea towel to keep it fresh!
We are more familiar with Asta’s work with felt – she is a wizard at felt making, both in framed and wearable art. We also love these felted covered diary’s and notebooks- each one totally unique and very a covetable product.
Now Asta has found a way to combine her love of linen and felt – by making beautiful linen bags in which to wrap and store, bespoke, nuno felted scarves. Isn’t this divine?
Keep up the good work Asta! https://www.facebook.com/OldCourtLinens/
