Producers of limited-edition Irish linen made in Ireland, 31 Chapel Lane use simple graphic images to celebrate the winter activity of foddering on the farm.

Above: Winter Fodder Tea Towels are made from 100 percent organic Irish linen; £12.

Above: Irish linen is highly absorbent and durable and becomes softer and stronger with age.

Above: “When the cattle go in for winter, it’s time to crack open the bales. Individually wrapped for freshness, like a massive chocolate kimberly for cows, they’ve sat in the field since late Summer and with any luck the peckish birds haven’t broken the seal yet.”
