Grandma Taught Me How To Knit
Our latest fashion story celebrates one of the oldest forms of textile creation with unparalleled sentimental value: knitting.
Words by Sophia Schwan
As we slowly bid summer farewell and face windier and greyer days, it is these handmade creations whose fibres are intertwined with gentle love notes that keep us warm. Natural fibres, as well as ethical sourcing and production, define the featured brands. Their modern take on this ancient craft is mirrored in a clean yet playful editorial photographed by Magnus Lechner and styled by Kira März. So if you feel inspired to take up knitting yourself or simply want to learn more about responsible wool, the references below are for you.
