Dust and Rock - The Original Wrist Pocket
Designed in Dungarvan, Co.Waterford by Susan Furniss Radley:
'I designed the Wrist Pocket after backpacking around South America in 2010. It would have made life so much easier and safer had I had it for travelling. A local seamstress stitched my design for me. I wore it everywhere, it replaced every handbag. I was stopped when out and about asking where I had bought it...
Roll on 10 years later after initial design concept... I was a commercial pilot, mom of 2 small boys (now 3 boys!) and took a huge leap of fate, handed in my notice and went about bringing The Wrist Pocket to market. It's been a whirlwind adventure, studying design, business and marketing. An adventure full of prototypes, fabrics, zips - a long, long way from my career in aviation!'
