The Aran Sweater takes its name from the set of islands where it originated many generations ago, off the West coast of Ireland. The Islanders were fishermen and farmers whose lives and livelihoods were deeply intertwined. The Aran Sweater was born of this environment, passed down from generation to generation, and has since become the ultimate symbol of Irish Clan heritage. Through a combined passion for craft, a keen eye for quality and an ambition to celebrate the long and fascinating heritage of Aran, the Aran Sweater Market was born. Check out their store located on College street for the best of Irish Knitwear.
