Spring / Summer 2018

Bháscóta Bán

A Jacket, a Cardigan, a Pub Jacket or a Bháscóta Bán: Included in our extensive selection of linen garments in Donegal, Melange and Solid colours in Masters of Linen quality we are offering a wide range of knitted jackets.

Long before James T Brudenell, aka Lord Cardigan, gave his name to the woollen garment worn by British army officers in the middle of the 19th century islanders in Inis Meáin were wearing knitted jackets. Following on from the re-launch of our original Pub Jacket last Spring Summer season we have made a new high V-neck jacket inspired by a 1910 photo of a local fisherman wearing a “Bháscóta Bán” as it was called.

The new Bháscóta Bán is buttoned higher and also comes in a longer version with pockets.

SS18 also includes garments in Organic Pima Cotton, Linen/Silk with a slub effect, Cotton/Cashmere/Silk and a mix of Masters of Linen with Organic Pima.
