This Irish Christmas ornament features the Claddagh that is carved of turf or peat.
For centuries turf or peat has been an integral part of Irish history and culture and it is used as a source of fuel to this day. Turf is harvested from areas that are known as the boglands; these areas of Ireland possess a rugged beauty that has inspired generations. Turf is a wonderful and unique product of the land that has evolved into a fine medium of artistic expression that enriches the links of our Celtic heritage and cultural identity.

The Irish peat Claddagh ornament is a dimensional design that is ready to hang on your tree with the included green ribbon and it is made in Ireland by Liffey Artefacts.
