Brands We Love: Ireland's Eye

Irelands Eye Knitwear is a family owned knitwear business based in Dublin with a focus on creating contemporary Irish-made, hand-finished pieces. 

When it comes to fashion, few things are as timeless and comforting as a well-crafted knitwear piece. In a world filled with mass-production, there's something truly special about donning a sweater that tells a story of tradition, craftsmanship, and warmth. This week, we want to shine a spotlight on a brand that embodies all of these qualities – Ireland's Eye Knitwear. 

A Stitch in Time: Crafting Tradition with Ireland's Eye

Ireland's Eye Knitwear is a brand that celebrates the rich knitting heritage of Ireland. With a history spanning over five decades, they have perfected the art of creating knitwear that is not only stylish but also built to last. Each piece they produce is a testament to their commitment to quality and craftsmanship.

Moving Modern 

Paul: “At the moment, our main collections are sweaters for men and women, inspired by our Irish heritage. Traditionally, Aran sweaters were for tourists, but through the evolution of our collections, we feel we’ve given Irish people the permission to wear Irish Knitwear, to wear it with pride, not just because it’s Irish, but because it’s a beautiful contemporary take on a wonderful Irish tradition. Last spring, we launched The Blossoms Collection which included a cropped Aran women’s sweater and cardigan, with an oversize sleeve in some great contemporary shades (the ‘Honeysuckle’ and the ‘Clover’) which really took off and was picked up by many fashionable Irish women, including Amy Huberman, Miriam O’Callaghan, Chupi, Naomi Clarke and Laura Jordan. This collection has also really taken off in key fashion-focused markets like Italy and France." 

Quality Materials, Ethical Practices

One of the standout features of Ireland's Eye Knitwear is their dedication to using only the finest materials. From luxurious merino wool to soft cashmere blends, every yarn is carefully chosen to ensure both comfort and durability. Plus, their commitment to ethical practices means you can feel good about wearing their creations.

Whether you're searching for a classic Aran sweater, a cosy cardigan, or a trendy poncho, you'll find it in their collection. Each piece is a work of art, reflecting the brand's dedication to staying relevant while honouring tradition.
