Splate – Unique Irish gifts

Our Story

This is Bernie Everard. She is a creator and has been working with natural slate for the last 4 years. Bernie introduced her first range of beautifully handcrafted  slate tableware products craft to the Irish market over 4 years ago.

Always innovating, Bernie has added her new range of slate wall art to her growing collection, some of which can be personalised.

With a background in Food Science Bernie has always had a keen interest in “foodie” gifts. Her DIY cheese kits have been a great success and she  plans to source cool and quirky food related gifts both from Ireland and around the world.

Styled by Nature

Mother Nature took her time to make our raw material. All our craftspeople have to do is coax out the unique beauty in each piece of slate - to find the diamond in the rough. The slate is cut by hand into the shape we need. It's a tricky process and requires a steady hand. It's here where we notice how different one piece of slate can be from another. It's a challenge but also part of the joy of working with a natural material.

Made By Hand

We treat the slate with food-grade oil. front and back, then buff the slates, leaving them looking nice and sleek - a natural beauty. Felt pads are applied, to protect your beautiful surfaces while you entertain family and friends. Finally, each piece is carefully packaged, ready for you to take home and enjoy. After all, we believe that some of the best memories are made around the table. Happy entertaining!
