Knitting a Modern Yarn

Our future is being designed today. While searching out trendsetting eco couture knitwear for the coming months I discovered some gems.

Irish designer, Sharon Wauchob, is now Creative Director of Bono and Ali Hewson's ethical brand EDUN. Wauchob established a loyal following within the industry for her alternative and conceptual lifestyle style and layering to create fashion forward sustainable stylings. The majority of Edun Apparel clothing - 80% of units manufactured - is made in Africa, specifically in Tunisia, Tanzania and Kenya, the remaining 20% is split between Peru and China.

Jonäno is the perfect one-stop shop for mindful and modern fashionista. The Scandinavian/American fashion brand Jonäno was founded in 2006 by international designer Bonnie Siefers, and has, over the last years, developed into a strong ready to wear eco fashion brand in the USA and internationally. 

For the classic eco couture, Bolivian born, BeatrizCanedo Patiño, is a true pioneer. Since the 1980’s her alpaca collections have been fashioned by the likes of European and Asian Royalty, celebrities, and international press named her “The Queen of the Alpaca.”
