Description

The Aran sweater is more than just a sweater. It’s a winter garment that represents a part of the rich history and culture of Ireland. Also known as the Fisherman’s Sweater, the Aran-style sweater was first made by women on the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland in the 1890s. As fishing was the main livelihood of Aran Island men, wives and mothers knitted these sweaters using unscoured wool to keep the fishermen warm during the brutally cold winters. The Aran sweaters became popular in the 1950s and 1960s, especially for their intricately-woven patterns that carried symbolic meanings, some of which include the
• Honeycomb – represents the hard-working honey bee
• Cable – symbolizes prayer for safety and good luck in the fisherman’s daily life
• Diamond – represents a blessing for wealth and success
• Basket – represents the fishermen’s basket for good luck in landing a fruitful catch
• Zigzag – symbolizes the cliffs of the Aran Islands
The Irish Aran Lightweight Crew Neck Sweater carries on the historical significance of traditional Aran sweaters along with added fashion versatility.
