Knitbrary: slow-luxury knit
Named for a combination of knit+library, the Spanish brand’s handcraftsmanship draws on the world’s finest fibres.
Beautiful, simple and limited edition knits: under the slogan “Timeless knitted beauty”, Knitbrary advocates the return of unique and timeless knitted garments. Yolanda Estévez’s refined designs bring out the best in the fibres, with exquisite finishes and extraordinary use of colour to guarantee a long-lasting result.
Every garment is the result of meticulous craftsmanship, made on a small scale by local artisans. The Peruvian Andes is home to the vicuña, which provides the finest wool in the world, and it is here that the finest baby and Suri alpaca are selected for silky-soft but hard-wearing textures. Knitbrary also works with pima cotton and has plans to develop its experience in other wools like cashmere and yak, though always to the same strict standards.
Knitbrary currently has more than 25 PoS in ten countries, and its own online shop. Its main market is Japan and it also operates in European countries like Germany, Austria, Norway, France and Italy, as well as the USA and China. Its AW15/16 collection showcased at the latest Pitti Uomo will reach selected shops in Tokyo and London next winter. The next big international date for Knitbrary’s delightful, warm textures is Tranoï Femme in Paris this March.
