Our Story

Rawsaol is a project developed by Brendan McCarey & James Cleary a pair who initially became friends over the garden wall. Summer evenings with family and friends were illuminated with open fires and this began their search for a functional long lasting fire pit that was portable and easy to store. With James's background in industrial design and Brendan's in craft design, they designed and tested prototypes to create an aesthetically functional fire pit. Through the process they also created a range of useful objects for everyday life, with functional design and symmetry as their mantra.

Sustainability is at the heart of what Rawsaol strives for. Where possible, our packaging and materials are sustainably sourced and environmentally friendly. Our recycled raw steel produces a product which will last a lifetime. The raw finish allows the steel to develop a beautiful patina that matures in character as it ages.

Based in the rural village of Mullan, Co Monaghan, the pair now create a wide range of homewares and outdoor products for people who enjoy simple, functional, and beautiful objects.

Moving Forward

The name Rawsaol is a play on words. Raw meaning we only want to use raw sustainable materials. Saol is the Gaelic word for Life, our end goal is to product beautiful, functional objects for everyday life. Using this simple philosophy we want to grow from our Irish foundations into a international brand which emanates and supports a healthy balanced lifestyle indoors and outdoors.
