McKernans

Anke & Eurgene McKernan

Eugene and Anke McKernan produce scarves since 1985.

Working together in their County Clare workshop in Ireland, they produce the woven styles on historic Hattersley Domestic looms. This 19th century technology creates a woven selvedge on every scarf, a feature reminiscent of handwoven textiles. The knitted styles are made on their 50 year old mechanical as well as a modern multi-gauge Stoll knitting machine. Each scarf is then hand finished in the McKernan workshop.

As a family business using traditional production methods Eugene and Anke McKernan have stayed true to their core values of sustainable quality and imaginative design. With good craftsmanship, original patterns and a multitude of natural textures and harmonious colours they fabricate scarves which consciously differ from fast changing fashion trends and often become unique and treasured keepsakes.
