The diamond stitch, which resembles a fisherman's mesh net, is the symbol for wealth and success, and it is filled in with a basket stitch, which symbolises the fisherman's basket and the desire for a big catch. Every stitch in Aran knitting carries its own meaning and the cables down the front represent a fisherman's ropes while the plaited cable is about the interweaving of family life.
Taylor's decision to wear the heritage stitch-inspired modern jumper yesterday thrilled the Irish craft sector, which last year enjoyed commercial ripples when actor Chris Evans wore a chunky Aran in the Hollywood film 'Knives Out'.
The actors fashion choice caused a bit of a frenzy and was even written about in the New Yorker magazine.
The jumper featured in the movie is a tradtionally crafted Aran jumper much like our range of mens knitwear.
