Letting in the Light

While our Winter 18 lookbook is a celebration of darkness and mystery, a burst of light can change the mood of a garment entirely and also serves to illuminate stitch work. We knit some of the collection pieces twice to highlight the dazzlingly different effect of cool and warm colors. Geiger in Kettle whispers its beauty, drawing the viewer in close to seek out the details. In Klimt, it trumpets: We love a bright scarf to banish the winter blahs. Bevel truly sings in exultant yellows and reds: Freja, the kind of wear-with-everything basic we like to keep in neutral colors, received...

Slow Fashion October

We’ve loved following along with the Slow Fashion October movement this month and thought we’d join in the fun with a group photo featuring our Portland office team in their handknits. Regardless of whether or not you participated in Slow Fashion October, we appreciate that there is a time set aside to have these conversations, which can be continued throughout the year. Read more about Slow Fashion October on the Fringe Association blog. And in case you're wondering what we're wearing(!), patterns from left to right are: Stasis (Loft), Rift (Shelter), Manzanilla (Arbor), Sous Sous (Arbor), Little Wave (Shelter), Timberline (Shelter), Hayward (Loft),...

Wool People 8

Dear Knitters, Welcome to late fall! We’ve had some glorious autumn days here on the east coast, with blue skies and red-gold leaves.

But let’s face it, the season when we’ll have to start making our own color is at hand! Thank goodness for yarn. I never feel ready to let go of these brilliant fall hues as late autumn sets in, and color selection for my own knitting usually reflects that (earlier this week I cast on for a new...

Video: On the Ground in Red Hook, Brooklyn

Our shoot for BT Fall 14 took place in Red Hook, Brooklyn – the perfect backdrop for our fisherman-inspired knitwear. We wrote a bit about the neighborhood in our lookbook feature, and shot a companion video piece to go along with the article which we're sharing today! The footage serves as a sort of visual journal of our own experience there – and sought to capture the character of Red Hook today. We've reposted the article below, too– hope you enjoy! .

Behind the Scenes of our BT Kids Photoshoot

Our photoshoot for BT Kids has to rank as one of our most entertaining times on set, ever. We shot the collection with 6 beautiful (and hilarious) children – ranging in ages from 2 to 8 – in a Cobble Hill (Brooklyn) brownstone, as well as the surrounding neighborhood blocks. Shooting a collection is always a wild experience. Despite the epic amount of planning that happens beforehand, variables like weather, location idiosyncrasies, models and collection size make each shoot unique and different in its own way. One thing is always a definite – it's a process that consistently keeps you...
