Making of a garment - The iconic Aran sweater
Chunky knits don’t come better than the classic Aran sweater. Everyone from Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot to Alexa Chung has worn and loved them, and their appeal shows no sign of waning. We created our own version in softest merino wool with a cable and latticework pattern in a variety of colours from classic neutrals to fire engine red. Needless to say, it’s been something of a uniform for team Chinti these past few weeks as temperatures have plummeted.
