Traditional Craft Irish Design T-Shirts
Known primarily for their charming and whimsical t-shirts, Traditional Craft is beloved most by those who want to get into the festive spirit of St. Patrick’s Day.
Galway Pub Irish Tee Shirt features six distinct Galway pubs that are a must-visit for anyone heading to that beautiful city on Ireland’s west coast. It is as much a tour guide as a statement graphic tee.
World’s Tallest Leprechaun Tee - if you’re more into leprechauns than seisiuns, Traditional Craft also has you covered, with several funny leprechaun shirts, including this vivid T-Shirt, featuring the cute body of a leprechaun just under the collar, allowing you to fill in the rest.
Or, you could teach your friends Irish with the Céad Míle Fáilte tee, with the traditional Irish welcome greeting printed in authentic Gaelic lettering. Céad Míle Fáilte means one hundred thousand welcomes in Irish and is the reason the country itself is still today known as the hospitable, friendly place full of charm and camaraderie. One nickname for Ireland is indeed the land of 100,000 welcomes, so wherever you go in this fanciful tee, you can spread those just a little more broadly.
Celtic Knot T-Shirts
Other tees from Traditional Craft feature ancient Celtic symbols like the Celtic knot and the trinity spiral, both rooted in pre-Christian Gaelic artwork and later adapted into Catholic iconography in the Middle Ages by Irish monks transcribing priceless religious texts. The Celtic knot symbolizes the interconnectivity of all things in the universe, from the stars to the beetle, illustrating how woven and interdependent all forms of life are upon each other. The Trinity spiral, also known as the triskele or triskelion, is even older, dating back to pre-Grecian times, and adapted throughout the years before becoming a distinctly Irish symbol. The trinity spiral can be found in Newgrange, Ireland’s oldest and grandest megalithic construction that predates the pyramids of Giza and Stonehenge in England. It is thought to represent the three elements that pagan Irish thought formed the basis of all life: Air, Water, and Earth. Today, it combines those ancient beliefs with the Christian trinity, becoming a perfect blend of Ireland’s long history of evolving spirituality.
