Inis Meáin Knitting Company was founded in 1976 on the Aran island of the same name by Tarlach de Blácam and Áine Ní Chonghaile. The couple was inspired by the unique spirit, environment and heritage of the place and were determined to make it their home. Becoming involved in a series of development projects aimed at creating a sustainable community, their mission led to equipping a small factory with six knitting machines and teaching the younger residents the time-honored craft of Irish knitwear. Inis Meáin Knitting Company offered regular work in a factory setting, attracting young people who would otherwise have left the island forever.
Today, Inis Meáin Knitting Company continues to delve into the rich knitting heritage of the island for inspiration, reinterpreting traditional stitches and styles in the finest yarns to create beautiful and sophisticated garments for contemporary living. We are proud to launch our partnership with this incredible, community-oriented knitwear maker.
The Pub jacket is one of the coolest pieces we've come across in quite some time. Knitted in heavy Irish linen, it walks the line between cardigan and outerwear exceptionally well and it's loose, gauzy weave makes it perfect for a warmer climate like Atlanta. It looks great with a sport shirt, chinos and loafers, while the slouchy feel is just about perfect for a relaxed weekend at home or at the beach. Worn as a cardigan under a heavier coat, it's a little more interesting than your typical wool variety. It just might become your favorite new piece of knitwear.
