Knitluxe Studio is a UK based design studio, creating sophisticated yet playful sports luxe clothing and accessories using ethically sourced and sustainable luxury yarns. Knitluxe Studio aims to challenge and transform the perception of knitted textiles while retaining craftsmanship, traditional techniques mixed with modern contemporary knitwear designs.
It is designed to make the wearer feel powerfully different, with maximising the natural performance properties of wool. All garments are created with the highest quality Extra fine Merino Wool, while the accessories range is created with Super Geelong Lambswool, initially for sustainable reasons however as wool has many natural benefits and it is one of the world’s most technically advanced fibre and works in total harmony with the wearer’s body. Every piece is created and constructed by hand on a 12gg vintage hand flat knitting machine, at all stages of the production we are committed to sustainability and only selecting traceable luxury yarns to encourage ethical practice and lifestyle and to ensure quality.
