At Highland Crafters we have some truly stunning fashion ranges currently in development, chief among them is our cable knit accessories collection. This range has been designed exclusively for us by one of our team of dedicated and highly skilled knitters Catherine Cameron.
The collection was inspired by the popular Aran style of knitting. First established in the west coast of Ireland in the 1900’s the style has gone from strength to strength as women across the UK (particularly Scotland) have created their own unique interpretations of the original Aran patterns. The style is characterised by distinctive intertwining decorative panelling and purposefully designed to look chunky in order to keep the cold at bay….so our accessories are undoubtedly the perfect compliment to face the forthcoming harsh Scottish winter weather!
This range comprises a scarf, fingerless gloves, beret, and even a matching iphone cover and laptop cover- so even your technology can be cosy warm. Although the products within the cable knit collection can of course be purchased separately, the coordinated items are designed to compliment each other and would certainly give the wearer a unique ‘look’ not seen anywhere else as we pride our garments on being as fashionable as they are functional.
We adhere to the traditional craft of hand-knitting each item separately. This ensures a level of quality not reached by companies who mass produce the Aran knitting style. Because we are a smaller outfit, we have the opportunity to use better quality knitting materials and more complex textured stitch patterns in order to satisfy our own desire to achieve the highest quality finish for our customers.
