An Irish Crios (pronounced Kris) is a multi coloured woven woollen belt. Traditionally woven from wool of six different colours, often with a white border, it was worn by the men of the Aran Islands, off the west coast of Ireland. ‘CHRISTY CRIOS’ are woven on a loom which Liz inherited from a property clear out in Co. Sligo. The owner of the shed wanted the two shaft floor loom ‘to go to a good home’. So Liz gladly obliged and used it to perfect the design and weaving of ‘the crios’, encouraged by her friend and mentor, Kitty Joyce. ‘CHRISTY CRIOS’ are hand woven in Co. Monaghan using beautiful tweed wool from Co. Donegal. Hand crafted to use as a belt, a guitar strap or a hand fasting braid to tie the knot.
