Women's Irish Aran Turtleneck Sweater
Women's Irish Aran Turtleneck Sweater
(Based on 8 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

For hundreds of years, women in the rural villages of the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland have knit natural wool sweaters for their fisherman kin. Although the myth that you can identify island families by the stiches in their sweater—like a Scottish tartan—isn't true, every knitter does have her own special patterns, passed down through generations of mothers and grandmothers. At weekly gatherings, they continually invented intricate new stitches.

Indonesian Beaded Shirt
Indonesian Beaded Shirt
(Based on 9 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Shirts

The wax-resist dyeing technique of batik has a long history in Indonesia, where it evolved into high art over the past few centuries. Using a special tool that allows melted wax to flow as if through a fountain pen, artisans trace elaborate floral designs, curlicues, and dotted patterns onto fabric. When dyed, the wax-drawn designs remain vibrant. Similar patterns are hand-drawn here using metallic paints on aqua-blue 100% cotton, with hand-beaded details. 3/4-length sleeves.

Available colors: Aqua, Rose
