Aodach-bùird // Table runner

aodach bùird 1

Aodach-bùird Cailleago mu 2m x 30cm

Tha mi air mòran aodaich-bùird brèagha fhaicinn thar nam bliadhnaichean, gu h-àraidh bho na dùthchannan Lochlannach, ’s chuir mi romham fear a dhèanamh le Gàidhlig.

‘S e cailleago nàdarra a th’ ann san aodach, agus mar sin chan eil e buileach geal. Cheannaich mi e bho chompanaidh Chuimris a bhios a’ ceannach o co-chomunn breabadaireachd ann an Kerala sna h-Innsean, agus sin a’ dèanamh cinnteach gum faigh an luchd-obrach deagh phàigheadh.

Dealbh air a chlò-bhualadh le làmh, stampa lino fèin-cruthaichte agus inc le bonn uisge.

Nigh fa leth e aig 30ºC ann an cuairt chiùin. Gus an dealbh a chumail soilleir, na nigh e ro thric.

*** Cudromach: Leis gun deach na h-aodaich bùird a chlò-bhualadh le làmh, tha gach fear dhiubh rud beag eadar-dhealaichte. Cha eil iad foirfe, ach tha sin gan dèanamh nas bhrèagha fhathast.

Faodaidh tu an t-aodach-bùird a cheannach tron bhùth air loidhne agam.

Calico Table Runner approx. 2m x 30cm

I’ve seen a lot of beautiful table runners over the years, particularly from Scandinavia, so I decided to make one myself using Gaelic. The design reads “food, conversation, friends & family” – the ingredients for a perfect meal!

The fabric is natural, organic unbleached calico, and so is off-white in colour rather than pure white. I bought the fabric from a Welsh company which deals directly with a women’s weaving co-operative in Kerala in southern India, making sure that the women working to weave the fabrics all receive a good wage.

The design in printed by hand with a hand-carved lino stamp using water-based ink.

Wash separately at 30ºC using a gentle cycle. I recomment keeping washing to a minimum to avoid the design fading.

*** Please note that as the table runners have been hand-printed, each one is slightly different with individual imperfections – however in my opinion this just adds to their charm.

You can buy this table runner through my online shop.
