Authentic Aran Knitwear In Ireland

The history of the Aran sweater is fascinating. You will find many styles and designs inspired by the traditional garment, handknitted by the women of the Aran Islands for more than a hundred years. Knitting and weaving are ancient crafts intertwined with the history of Ireland. Our clothing and homewares are an excellent choice for sustainability, too, made with our top-quality local wool.

The Aran Islands are the home of the Aran sweater, and the harsh but beautiful environment of these Islands is reflected in the stitches that make up these unique garments. In the early days, these sweaters were created to protect fishermen and farmers from the elements. The patterned stitches used are representative of the landscape and the qualities of the people who made their lives here. The Moss stitch, for example, represents the bright carrageenan moss that was historically an important food source. The Chevron stitch evokes the Atlantic Sea as it crashes against the cliffs of Inis Mor. 

Wearing an Irish sweater that is so steeped in history is an exceptional experience. Finding the perfect gifts for your family members and friends within our range allows you to share this feeling. We even have a growing handknitted range of ClanAran sweaters that includes more than 200 family names already, and this is the perfect way to celebrate Irish heritage. Each Clan name consists of a Clan Scarf, Sweater, or Throw. Each comes with a family crest card to ensure that it is the perfect keepsake to treasure for years to come.
