The crios belt was traditionally woven and worn by fishermen on the Aran Islands. They were woven by hand, without a loom, by simply stretching the yarn between two stools or, more traditionally, between one hand and one foot. Just as every family would knit their Aran sweaters with a particular series of stitches in order to distinguish a fisherman drowned at sea, so too would every crios have its own particular identifying set of colours.
With a direct link to the origins of these belts comes Inis Meáins modern interpretation of the belt finished with a two-ring closure and singed edges.
