The Aran Knit, Helping People From the Beginning

This season knitwear is in big-time. Big chunky knits with cable patterns are everywhere on the catwalk and the high street. As bibico is ethical while on trend, we also have knits piled up at our HQ. We found it interesting, while researching the knit, that there's a link between the Aran Islands a century ago and Nepal now. That link is the alleviation of money issues through knitting. In the Aran Islands, off the west coast of Ireland it's likely that women knitted the jumpers not just to clothe their families but for extra income. bibico works with women's co-operatives in Nepal, getting women to use their passed down knitting skills to generate income for their families.
