The Sweater Shop opened it's doors for the first time in 1986, when the first branch was opened in Dublin. The founder, Dom Byrne, worked for one of the major knitwear manufacturer for the previous ten years, where he learned the technical side of knitting by hand, machine and the details of the various wools.

He discovered a sweater specialist store in the west coast of USA, while on his visit to sell his sweaters.
