Brand Profile: Fisherman Out Of Ireland
On the southwest coast of Donegal, nestled between the fishing port of Killybegs and the majestic Sliabh Liag sea cliffs sits the village of Kilcar. The village is home to the world famous knitwear brand Fisherman Out of Ireland. At Triona we are proud to be the main stockist of Fisherman Out Of Ireland products in Co.Donegal for over 5 years.
The brand creates contemporary, premium Irish knitwear. Stunning examples of sweaters, hats and scarves are all made using 100% natural, luxury fibre yarns. Some of these fibres are even spun by their neighbours, Donegal Yarns, located beside the brand in Kilcar. Fisherman Out Of Ireland feature products made with yarns such as cashmere, alpaca and merino wool. All in beautiful and vibrant colours.
The pieces draw inspiration from the local surroundings, sights and smells. Breath-taking rocky cliff faces, speckled rocks, the wild blue sea, the Donegal smokey morning mist... these are the colours, tones and textures that blend to give rural North West Ireland its vividness and vitality.
Much has been written about the famous Aran sweater, its origins and what meanings the patterns hold, What makes a Fisherman Out Of Ireland piece special is the authenticity of an Irish inspired sweater, made in Ireland, with a modern fit and yarns that you can wear next to your skin.
