The Irish spirit transcends geographical boundaries so as this St. Patrick’s day looks a little different, IrelandsEye Knitwear wanted to bring a shared sense of connection with its latest collection.
IrelandsEye’s designers have always been inspired by the wild Irish landscape and the rugged coastline. Founded in Dublin in 1988, IrelandsEye is a family-run company that’s been making knitwear for over 30 years. Using 100% natural yarns for modern lifestyles and their own signature colors, they bring the personal touch to everything they make, with each piece carefully finished by hand.
This past year has given IrelandsEye designers an even deeper appreciation of the natural beauty that surrounds them. They’re sharing this with the world through their new Aran Classics collection.
For over a hundred years Irish fishermen and farmers have trusted Aran knitwear to shield them from the merciless sea winds that sweep onto the coast. Its textures and colors reflect the Irish landscape and offer protection from the elements. Now everyone can feel that same Irish warmth, comfort, and sense of belonging wherever they are with their very own piece from the Aran Classics collection.
“The new Aran Classics Collection is a great addition for IrelandsEye as they continue their proven legacy of authentic Irish knitwear. Enterprise Ireland is proud to support IrelandsEye here in Canada as well as across the globe”, said Emma Shaw, Enterprise Ireland Market Executive.
IrelandsEye has taken the traditional Aran style and brought it right up to date, with fresh stitches, a signature color palette, and the softest of wool, all woven together with their own unique design twist for a contemporary look and feel that perfectly complements today’s lifestyle.
One of their biggest fans is Ontario store owner, Patti, who loves the quality and longevity of their knitwear, as well as the chance to chat about all things Irish. “I have IrelandsEye sweaters that I have owned for over 15 years. I always tell my customers, the quality, fit and feel give comfort and warmth all the time, even in the summer months, as the Merino wool is breathable. I love sharing IrelandsEye pieces with my customers and talking to them about my own Irish heritage and the best places to visit in Ireland”. Patti Hendriks, Primitive Creek, Seaforth, Ontario.
The Aran Classics collection celebrates Irish heritage and the strength of the Irish spirit and invites people to wrap up in their very own little piece of Ireland this St. Patrick’s Day.
