Vitamin Sea or Vitimín na Mara

These socks are the winning design of 'Design your own socks competition, 2022 edition with the incredible Marion Belliot as the winner.

Inspiration behind the design:

Water, and sea in particular, has this power of making us feel alive. Swimming in the Irish Sea or the Atlantic Ocean is so refreshing, reviving. The water can sometimes be quiet and peaceful, but also deep and unfathomable, sometimes wild. People come to the coast to feel the healing effects of seawater and fresh sea air. During all seasons, Spring, Summer,
Autumn, Winter, the sea offers us beauty and unique moments.

Marion's art is inspired by road trips & hikes around all of Ireland. She carries a sketchbook everywhere she goes. She captures the unique atmosphere of a place or town at her illustration studio "Explore with Marion". She loves illustrating Irish beauty with traditional mediums and digital technologies, always experimenting!

SIZE: EU 36-40 / UK 3-7

Great products made by people we know

When we started Quinlans Gift Shop in 1988, we wanted to offer high-quality, carefully chosen products to our customers in a friendly environment.

Our part for the planet 

We’re well aware of the impact that consumer purchasing decisions can have on the environment. As a retailer, we feel our highest responsibility is to ensure that we’re taking measures to minimize our impact, and the impact of our customers' purchases, on the environment. 

Here are some of the ways we plan to play our part for the planet: 

  • Sustainable packaging 
  • Re-use of cardboard and brown paper received from suppliers in customer orders 
  • Continuously educate our team about the environmental crisis and explore ways that we can use our business to help 
  • Deal primarily with Irish suppliers to minimize our carbon footprint 
  • Aiming to be plastic free

Who we are

Quinlans was started by Brigin and John P Quinlan in Macroom, County Cork. We’ve had some fantastic people join our team over the years, and any success that we’ve had is as much theirs as it is ours. Our current team is small and we pride ourselves on cultivating a culture where people can be themselves at work, feel safe and appreciated, and have an opportunity to continuously learn and develop.

Quinlans want to offer you an enjoyable and memorable experience when choosing a special gift for you or a loved one

There’s something special about seeing a person master his or her craft. We’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the most talented Irish and European craft makers, from ceramics and glass to jewellery and textiles. We carefully choose the suppliers we work with and operate through trust and transparency to ensure lasting relationships are formed. We value getting to know the people behind the products that we offer.
