Our Emma will be taking a little time away from the Manley Studio to to bring Baby Manley into the world shortly, so it's time to crack on with the sample sale so she can be there to help y'all out with picking your next Manley!

Why Design?

This project is a showcase of influential female designers who live and work in Ireland. Today, the Irish Design sector is 25% female and 75% male, this ratio is simply not good enough.
