Design & Display

We are dedicated to ensuring the best service and quality from our company. POS material is available and we offer the best methods of displaying our ranges.

Our Roots

Based in the beautiful town of Westport which has strong links to the textile and knitting industries spanning several generations, we are very fortunate to be surrounded by some of the most stunning scenery imaginable – rivers, lakes, The Reek (Croagh Patrick Mountain) and of course the wild Atlantic Ocean, an infinite source of inspiration for our design team and one that is often featured in our stitch detail, not to mention our branding and labelling. Whether inspired by our surroundings or equally our knitting heritage, every stitch is steeped in symbolism, from the fisherman’s cable (representing safety and good luck) to the honeycomb (a just reward for hard work).

Irish Knitwear At its best

Our Products

Each piece is a testimony to the skill and craftsmanship of our designers and knitters. Working almost exclusively with natural materials, Aran knitwear remains as much in fashion today as it did yesteryear. It is constantly evolving and innovations in styling and yarns ensure it belongs in today’s wardrobe even more so than at any time in past. Aran knitwear is synonymous with our country. It is more than just a product. It is almost a matter of national pride. No wonder we are passionate about it. And we think it shows in everything we do! Aran Woollen Mills. The authentic spirit of Ireland.
