Fáilte go Hoopla Focal!
Dia duit agus fáilte go dtí Hoopla Focal! I launched Hoopla Focal in June 2020. My aim is to make it easier to buy clothing that allows you to express yourself as Gaeilge. There aren’t many options out there for clothing with Irish slogans. So I decided to make my own! And because everything I make is customised and bespoke, you can make your own too!
You can choose between beautifully cosy sweatshirts, soft and strong denim tote bags, and bright and vibrant make up bags. I offer 14 different thread colours, so you can really make your order unique.
I have several different designs available. Such as sweatshirts hand-embroidered with Bí Cineálta (Be Kind), Tóg Go Bog É (Take It Easy) or simply Grá (Love). Or you can choose a bespoke sweatshirt and have your own cúpla focal embroidered on it. A phrase that has special meaning to you. An inside joke with friends. A childhood Irish expression from school. The options are limitless!
My denim tote bags are perfect for creating your own unique lists. What would be top of your shopping list? They make the ideal gifts, and fold up small to fit in your póca or mála to take out for any extra shopping. The Baby Tote Bags are perfect for keeping in a baby changing bag, and are a really useful present for new parents.
Sustainability is so important, and I’ve made sure to make ethical choices at every stage. Everything is made from recycled organic cotton and recycled polyester. There are 12 recycled plastic bottles in every sweatshirt. They’ve also been certified by the Fair Wear Foundation, which guarantees that garment workers are paid a fair wage and work in safe conditions. All my packaging is made from recycled materials and is biodegradable.
If you have any questions, or are not sure where to start with your order, please feel free to get in touch.
