Bróna O’Brien is a Textile & Surface Designer. Born in Ireland, travelled to London, and later San Francisco, California where she trained in Textiles & Surface Design. She held both in-house and freelance design positions, and now creates designs for an array of markets from her studio in Clane, Co. Kildare,  Ireland.

Bróna’s areas of design are Home Furnishings, Table Top, Paper Products, Apparel and Accessories. She enjoys the creative nature of designing patterns, using color and texture to execute the desired look and feel of a print. She has worked with retailers such as Pottery Barn Kids, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Bon Ton, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Linens N’Things, Merry Stockings, and Primark – Penny’s Ireland.

Her large pattern library, stash of yarns, threads, fabric, trims, buttons and embellishments spark ideas. These elements are gathered from shopping trips, vacations, fabric and fashion shows. Collections of photos from nature, craft, fashion, architecture and interior design provide additional inspiration. Bróna also creates hand knit and sewn accessories, which satisfy her enjoyment and love for textile and surface pattern.
