IrelandsEye Knitwear started with six family members in 1988 and our business has involved 3 generations of the same family. We now employ a team of 50 people in our 30,000 Sq. Ft. factory as part of our extended family and continue to produce high quality knitwear that we ship to customers all over the world.
INSPIRED BY NATURE AND A RICH IRISH KNITTING TRADITION
At IrelandsEye Knitwear, we are inspired by nature and the colours and textures of the Irish landscape. Our knitwear is designed to provide comfort and warmth and to shield from the merciless winds of the Atlantic Ocean and the Irish Sea. We give traditional Aran stitches a modern twist with fresh designs and a contemporary look and feel.
A NOD TO THE PAST, AN EYE ON THE FUTURE
The O’Sullivan family are originally from Sutton in Dublin. The Irish for O’Sullivan is Ó Súilleabháin, which means ‘one-eyed’ and the island of Ireland’s Eye can be seen from the Sutton coast, which is how the name came about.
PROUDLY MADE IN IRELAND
Our customers wanted quality knitwear that was made in Ireland. Manufacturing in Ireland wasn’t cheap, so we knew we’d have to make our knitwear special and that’s exactly what we did. We focused on distinctive design and invested in quality yarn and we haven’t looked back since.
CREATED WITH LOVE AND FINISHED BY HAND
Our process has become much more automated over the years but, although we now have some very high-tech machines to help us knit our garments, we pride ourselves on the exceptional level of craftsmanship we bring to our pieces.
