Aran sweaters have a long history that has also become a special part of Irish culture, and it started in the 1890s in the Aran Islands, which are located off of the western coast of Ireland. Fishing was the main type of livelihood for many Aran Island men, so their wives and mothers would knit these sweaters from unscoured wool to keep the fishermen insulated during the brutally cold winters. Aran sweaters gained wide popularity in the 1950s and 1960s, and they were especially adored for their elaborate woven patterns that each possess a significant meaning.
Some of the more popular Aran stitches include the honeycomb, which represents hard work and the dedicated worker bees of the Aran Islands, the moss stitch that signifies growth and also symbolizes carrageenan moss, which is the seaweed that lines the stone walls on the Aran Islands, and the zigzag, which symbolizes the cliffs of the Aran Islands. Other widely recognized stitches include the diamond, which signifies a blessing for abundance, wealth, and success, the basket, which represents the fisherman's basket for good luck in making abundant catches, and the cable, which represents prayers for safety and good luck in the fisherman’s daily life.
