Women's Irish Aran Turtleneck Sweater
(Based on 9 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.

Tiwanaku Textiles Alpaca Sweater
Tiwanaku Textiles Alpaca Sweater
(Based on 14 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

In the Bolivian high plains, amid the snowcapped Andes, the pre-Inca Tiwanaku culture thrived for more than 500 years. So far only a fraction of the civilization's ruins have been excavated, yet it has yielded some of the earliest and more remarkably well-preserved textiles found in the Americas. Their art features highly abstracted figures, that originally expressed real places, animals, or cultural events but over time became icons with symbolic meaning. The high degree of abstraction in the art of Tiwanaku has inspired several art historians to compare their art to modern abstract movements, including Cubism. The intricate, interlocked geometric patterns on this alpaca fiber sweater are adapted from woven Tiwanaku tunics made around 500 A.D.

Pirot Cotton Cardigan
Pirot Cotton Cardigan
(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

One of Serbia’s most significant craft traditions are kilims, or flat woven rugs, made in the historic southeastern town of Pirot. They were a symbol of Serbian royalty in the early part of the 20th century, and they’re still used frequently at state functions. The geometric designs are so often imitated that they’ve been “trademarked” with a geographical indication, similar to the way that only sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France can truly be called champagne.

Irish Wool Military Cardigan
Irish Wool Military Cardigan
(Based on 9 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters
This hearty forest green cardigan takes its inspiration from military-style Irish sweaters, often worn by volunteers who fought with the British in WWII. Although Ireland was neutral and relations with Britain were strained, thousands of men and women chose to join the Allied cause as members of the British Royal Army and Merchant Navy, or by working in British factories. Our contemporary version uses rich leather to enhance frequent wear points, ensuring years of rugged outdoor wear. Leather shoulders help keep expedition gear and luggage straps from slipping off. Front slash pockets add functionality and make this sweater an alternative to a jacket on milder winter days. Pure Irish wool, knit in Ireland.
