Áine designs and manufactures unique ladies knitwear in County Clare, Ireland. Her beautiful poncho collection is a fusion of contemporary and traditional Irish design using only the finest Lambswool. Áine discovered the beauty of knitwear when she was just four years old. She was enthralled by her grandmother turning a ball of wool into an Aran sweater with just a pair of knitting needles. Áine watched and learned, by the age of ten she was taking orders from the local people for her own Aran Sweaters. Following graduating from Limerick School of Art and Design and working for some of the leading knitwear companies in Ireland she went her own way in 2000, and Áine knitwear was born. Now an award winning label, the pieces created are based on a dedication to quality craftsmanship, with unique and distinctive designs that are rooted in Irish tradition..
