The small island of Inis Meáin is part of the Aran Islands off the coast of Ireland. A place of wild, untamed beauty that places high demands on the fishermen that for centuries have inhabited the area. Their hard-wearing and warm jumpers have been knitted by the island's women for generations, a tradition still cherished today.
The Island's Knitting Mill
The Inis Meáin mill was established in 1976, when couple Tarlach de Blácam and Áine Ní Chonghaile reloated to the remote island. They both felt a strong connection to the area, and made several attempts to find a way to make a living on the island before settling on founding a small knitting mill, harnessing the island's generations of expertise in creating unique knitwear.
