Disana Aran-Pullover Sweater
The characteristic zigzag pattern originates probably from the Irish Aran-Islands. The Irish fishermen’s wives made the warm jumpers with this pattern for their husbands. Our Aran Jumper is very warm too, because it’s knitted with an extra portion of fine merino wool. The large meshes and the voluminous knit encloses small air cushions, which act additionally insulating. That’s what makes our Aran jumper definitely an all-weather jumper for colder days. Sleeves and body with ribbed cuffs and a classic round neck.
| Why do we love this product:
We believe in pure, unspoiled nature right from the moment we select our raw materials. Only organic cotton and organic pure new Merino wool which has been independently inspected and certified is used for our disana articles.
We are not only concerned about avoiding contaminants in the fibres of our thread: people’s living conditions and environmental protection in the countries where they are cultivated are also important criteria we bear equal responsibility for, just like all the other links in the production chain.
When selecting our suppliers, we trust in partnerships, many of which have lasted for years. Our suppliers are also obliged to comply with the IVN guidelines, as we do, and provide us with detailed documentary proof. Every working stage, every substance used in production and every auxiliary material is checked for conformity with these guidelines, their use precisely monitored and recorded. This process is often very complicated and generally also more expensive, but it is the only way to ensure that all production steps meet our high standards for craftsmanship and ecological quality.
The threads and fabrics thus produced are processed exclusively at our works and nearby partner factories so that we can constantly monitor all steps of production and take action when required. A lot of details make this process a success. It is not only the threads and fabrics which are subject to strict regulations: the ingredients and additional materials such as sewing thread, buttons, etc. – even the lubricating oil in our knitting machines – have to be checked for conformity with the guidelines and their usage documented.
Yearly certification by independent institutes and regular analysis of samples provide documentary evidence of our hard work and make the production of our organic textiles even safer.
