The use of local iconography was the inspiration behind these custom designed playing cards for the Fogo Island Inn. Designer Carolina Söderholm worked with illustrator Dan Perrella and used traditional male/female roles such as fishing and wood cutting, as well as baking and berry picking for the court cards, and animals and fish found on and around the island for the aces. The joker naturally had to be a mummer.
The pouches are hand made by the community artisans of Fogo Island who added finishing touches such as individual vintage buttons to give the playing cards a truly unique experience. It's the ideal way to pass the day in one of the guestrooms or to take with you as a memento of your visit.
