Inis Meáin

Die, Workwear introduces us to Irish label Inis Meain, which has been crafting Aran sweaters since 1976. And while the design is steeped in traditional knitting techniques, the sweaters themselves have been upgraded with fine Italian cashmere and luxe British wools in unique and more modern colors.

Today, Inis Meáin the knitting company employs 16 people and produces 350 garments per week. Though they draw from the heritage of the area, these aren't the kind of Aran sweaters you'd find in some souvenir shop, however.
