Each item of knitwear is made by a different pair of hands therefore there might be little imperfections. We cherish these little imperfections and feel they are part of the unique beauty of each product. Our items all take time to finish as they are hand knitted, hand assembled and often have intricate crochet finishes.

We are so proud and grateful to be working with these amazing projects, crafters and makers. For us supporting the slow and gentle production process, the handmade and the handcrafted is so important. We want to help keep alive certain traditions and skills that have been taught and practised around the world for centuries. Skills and techniques passed on from generation to generation that have brought us pieces of art, intricatetly crafted garments and especially durable goods.
