Since the company's founding in 1976, the Inis Meáin Knitting Company has been devoted to keep the long-standing tradition of knitting alive in the Aran Islands. Their products are individual and unique pieces of knitwear in the finest yarns, all exquisitely finished by hand. Our range is continually updated with new styles as well as variations on our customers’ old favourites.
Inis Meáin is a very modern company, with a highly-educated, well-trained workforce using the most up-to-date machinery. The Irish business uses their machinery differently to most other companies with the same technology – because they choose not to mass-produce. Instead, specializing in small runs of new styles and changing the settings on machinery several times each day, so that up to 50 different styles can be produced each season.
The authentic heritage, sophisticated design, beautiful yarns, and impeccable finishing of Inis Meáin knitwear are appreciated by our customers around the world. Their range of styles continues to evolve as we explore the vast Aran knitting repertoire.
