Dillisk - Palmaria Palmata
Bring the sea home; a collection of botanical prints inspired by clear bright mornings seaweed foraging in the ice cold waters of the Atlantic. Hang as a set or make a single bold statement. Crisp, elegant shapes are softened by delicate colour variations. Each print block is cut by hand and hand printed onto a 50gr handmade Japanese washi paper from Awagami Factory in Tokushima, Japan, where they have been making washi papers for eight generations. Each print is made by hand in the studio of Superfolk on the west coast of Ireland.
Learn More About Dillisk (Palmaria Palmata)
Dillisk (Palmaria Palmata) also known as Dulse, Dilsk or Creathnach grows along the the low tide line on rocky exposed shores and is easily identified by its maroon coloured leathery fronds. Hand picked and left to dry in the wind, it makes a salty chewy snack that pairs well with dark ales and stouts. Alteratively try Dillisk Kimchi or add flavour to potato dishes (dillisk champ), boiled and pureed like a laverbread, or to make a dillisk dashi (a Japanese style soup stock). Dillisk is traditionally eaten as a snack in Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Greenland, Norway and the Faroe Islands and is an excellent source of dietary iodine.
