Cashmere designed to last a lifetime

CASTANEA creates knits that are contemporary, feminine, effortless & spun from only the finest selected cashmere. Our cashmere garments are designed to last a lifetime. We are a slow knitwear brand offering modern design in knitwear. 

We take pride in ensuring that each of our customers receive the highest quality cashmere garments that will last a lifetime. 

The ethos of CASTANEA is ‘to make women feel strong and confident in themselves’ to feel you, to feel fierce,  to feel 100% authentic in pure uncompromising design & luxury. 

Handmade from ethically sourced yarn

All of our garments are designed by Castanea’s Founder and Irish Designer Paula Marron. With over a decade’s experience working with knitted cashmere and it’s this remarkable fibre that plays the central role in the brands philosophy, it is no surprise that Paula has been referred to as a ‘rising Irish cashmere queen’ by Irish Times Fashion Editor, Deirdre McQuillan.
