The Book of Kells is an illuminated manuscript book written in Latin and dating from around the 9th Century. Although its exact origins are contested, it remains one of the best examples of Insular Celtic art and the attention to detail within the lettering is beyond incredible. If you are ever in Dublin, we would definitely suggest visiting the Trinity College Library in which the manuscript is housed.

These designs by Sacred Knot Tattoo where meticulously remastered from the manuscript and are hand printed in the Northern Fire studio.

   

Material & Make

Our t-shirts are made with ethically sourced 100% organic cotton and are hand printed in house by Northern Fire artists at our workshop in Wales. Our inks are water based and locally sourced and to minimise the negative impact of the textile industry on the environment.

For more information about our commitment to sustainability, you can keep up to date with what we are doing within the collective on our environmental page.
