The Iconic Aran Sweater

The iconic Irish sweater is officially ‘in vogue’ with a new exhibition at New Yorks world famous Museum of Modern Art. It will feature alongside Levi’s 501 the Birkin bag and the Wonderbra to name just a few.

Aran sweaters are a powerful expression of the creativity of our crafts people here in Ireland and here at Aran Islands Knitwear we are very happy this is being recognised through inclusion in this important global exhibition.

The importance of this meticulous skill and heritage design is being recognised by top global designers and is being used as a template on their drawing boards for this season. The likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexander Mc Queen and Burberry have chosen the Aran sweater design in this Autumn/ Winter seasons collection.
