Island Turf Crafts creates original and historical works of art from the peat of Irish boglands. The 5,000 year old boglands, or peatlands, of Ireland are a distinctive feature of the Irish countryside. Ancient treasures such as gold, silver and bronze artefacts have been discovered in the soft dirt or peat. In the past, peat was mostly used to warm cottages from the damp Irish climate. Today, Island Turf Crafts transforms peat into authentic Irish gifts that warm the hearts of family and friends.
