The Aran Sweater Market is located on College Street in Killarney, County Kerry. It sells authentic Aran sweaters direct from the Aran Islands. The Irish Aran sweater is well known all over the world for its high quality and durability, and has been appreciated by its customers for many years.
It has grown from humble beginnings way back in 1892 to emerge as one of the most successful woollen craft industries in the world. The Aran Sweater Market acts as a guardian of this proud island tradition as it continues to grow as an international fashion item.
All Aran knit garments at the Aran Sweater Market must pass strict quality standards and are appraised by hand, before being issued a signed and stamped “Certificate of Authenticity” which contains its own unique registration number. This document certifies that your Irish Aran Sweater has been knitted using original Irish designs from the home of the Aran sweater, the Aran Islands. It also provides information on the symbolic meaning of each stitch used within Aran knitting.
Highly skilled knitting ladies from the islands and on the mainland supply the Aran Sweater Market’s genuine Aran sweaters, ensuring that customers receive only the finest examples of men’s, women’s and children’s Aran knitwear and house and home crafts while helping to preserve an old skill and craft.
