Handknit Aran Sweater: The origins of the Aran sweater trace back to the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland, and the hand-knitting the islands became known for are said to have been introduced as early as the 17th century. Each sweater told of “clans,” almost like a family crest, and these specific patterns were passed down from within each clan from generation to generation, becoming an extremely significant marker of Irish tradition and heritage.
