Island existence has always required independence, resourcefulness and innovation. Inis Meáin Knitting Company in the Aran Islands was born into this spirit of independence and resourcefulness.
The collections that we design in Inis Meáin are inspired by the traditional dress of the islanders and our environment — with a touch of luxury.
The rugged outdoor island lifestyle calls for practical, quality clothing, along with this the islanders always had a sense of style, in 1907 the writer JM Synge reflected:
“The simplicity and unity of the dress increases in another way the local air of beauty”
