The DCCI is the national agency for the commercial development of Irish designers and makers, stimulating innovation, championing design thinking and informing Government policy.
The MADE LOCAL campaign has been developed by DCCI to sustain Ireland’s design and craft sector during this recovery phase. It celebrates Irish creativity and aims to inspire consumers, makers, shops and media.
It is divided in 2 sections, the "Shop Online" section to discover the best of design and craft from Ireland, all in one place, and the "Portfolio", for the craftspeople producing work to an international exhibition standard.
