Áine was established at the turn of the century by fashion designer Áine Behan.Growing up on the Wild Atlantic Way on the west coast of Ireland has deeply influenced Áine.
The strong family heritage of knitting ensured that Áine was immersed in the craft as she watched the women of her family instinctively knit Aran sweaters without patterns or guides, having mastered the craft from the previous generations. This experience created in Áine a love of knitwear that continues to inspire her to this day.
