The secret of Peruvian Connection’s success is in its relationships. It is important that our collection not only reflect a unique range of high quality garments but also support, promote and encourage the traditions and life-styles of our knitting partners. While our commitment to South America is obvious and unyielding we are proud of our long-standing association with the Inis Meáin Knitting Company out of Ireland.
Anchored in a long tradition of hand-knitting, Inis Meáin is in a league of its own. It designs, makes and exports from a tiny island out in the Atlantic twenty miles off the Galway coast. Since 1977 they have provided regular employment for a small group of islanders, which is important in a place where young people are often forced to go to the mainland or abroad to find work.
They reinterpet classic Aran themes in the most luxurious of yarns such as alpaca, cashmere, Merino wool and silk. We are proud to offer a touch of this tradition in our Holiday collection with their baby alpaca and silk Replica Sweater.
