Crios/Cross: little Irish weavings
Welcome! Crios/Cross is dedicated to "little Irish weavings", the traditional Brigid Crosses made for centuries in Ireland, and the handwoven belts called 'Crios' (pronounced 'kriss') once a staple of workaday gear in the Aran Islands, here made up in wool or cotton in contemporary as well as traditional colors. Every item is individually hand made by me. Your questions are welcome! see below to join my email list or ask for a special order- you choose the colors and widths on the belts, or the paper and ribbon colors for an order of 5 or more Brigid Crosses.
All the best! - Laura Travis
Crios/Cross is where you can share- and wear- the tradition, with handwoven Crios belts and sweet Brigid's Crosses. In this time of unease, upheaval, and retreat to the home, remember that Brigid in all her guises is linked closely with healing, and protection of the home.
If you are in the RI/Southeast Mass area, you can select from most of the items you see here in person at my studio at 30 Cutler Street, Warren RI! Here's a link for my holiday pop up shop, in-studio: https://fb.me/e/cOgMFQLfn
