The results come as Orla Kiely bounces back from its administration filing in 2021, with the company stating that trading had “improved significantly” as it continues to “on the strength of its brand and designs”.

Turnover, for example, came in at 3.3 million pounds, up from 2.1 million pounds in the year prior, and was driven by product revenue and its e-commerce business, bolstered by the launch of a new website which it said has aided in significant growth in both the UK and international markets.

Orla Kiely’s royalties income also rose from 1.3 million pounds to 1.6 million pounds, while its cash balance remains stable at 1.9 million pounds, up from its previous 1.5 million pounds.

On the results, Dermott Rowan, managing director and co-owner of Orla Kiely, said in a release: “The Orla Kiely brand has delivered another year of strong trading. Our highly successful ecommerce operation has supported a significant jump in product income, as Orla Kiely products are enjoyed by more people in more countries.

“I am deeply proud of the Orla Kiely team for building the brand into the powerhouse of mid-century design that it is today, with a growing and dedicated international customer base.”
