The Aran jumper, originally made in the 1900’s by the wives of fishermen for their dear husbands out at sea needing warmth to withstand the harsh Atlantic weather and a pullover that would stand the test of time.
However fast forward to the 1950’s when Aran sweaters entered the fashion world, globally! See images of the Princess of Monaco and Hollywood sensation Grace Kelly yachting out at sea wrapped in her Irish fisherman sweater. Or the famous Steve McQueen pulling off his traditional Irish sweater in the coolest manner possible keeping up to his nickname of the ‘King of Cool.’
Aran sweaters are more prominent than ever in our fashion culture today, combining the traditional Celtic styles such as the cable, diamond and braided stitching with more modern and contemporary patterns, creating an exclusively unique jumper that’s a stylish hit for both men and women.
