Fine Irish Linen Kinsale Christening Cloak – “Tara Brooch” Style Pure Irish linen, inspired designs and generations of County Donegal craftsmanship come together in the making of this handsome hooded christening cloak.
Fully lined, a timeless and respected blend of tradition and ceremony.
One size, for little girls or boys up to 12 months. Non Allergic.
The embroidery on this cloak is modeled on the Tara Brooch, one of Ireland’s best-known antiquities. Probably made about thirteen hundred years ago, the real Tara is an ornate Celtic ring brooch – Tara brooch embroidery made of gold, silver, copper, amber and glass – which was found on the seashore at Bettystown, south of Drogheda, and is now preserved in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin. The cloak is simple and yet elegant, with a plain hem and tie at the neck.
