About Aran Sweaters
The first Aran sweaters were knitted in the Aran Islands, on Ireland’s West Coast.
Since these islands were surrounded by frigid Atlantic waters, the fishermen and farmers of the Aran islands needed sweaters that were thick and sturdy enough to protect them from the elements.
These sweaters were passed down through the generations, and they’ve become symbols of the Irish clans and their history.
The unique stitching patterns used to make authentic Aran sweaters indicated different clans.
In fact, these sweaters really tell a story. Islanders were able to intuit plenty of information about other Islanders, based on the designs that they wore. Patterns for different clan sweaters were kept secret from outsiders.
When fishermen drowned in the Aran Islands, their identities were discovered via the Aran sweaters that they wore.
As you can see, the Aran sweater plays a pivotal role in Irish history, culture and heritage.
So, why not honor your own Gaelic background – or that of someone that you love – by choosing our lovely Tara’s Diary Irish Aran Sweater Charm today?
