Happy Friday!

This week I am fascinated by Coohem, a Japanese knitwear brand. The brand emerged from Yonetomi Seni Co. company that has been in textile business since 1952. The company has its own absolutely unique style and stands out among other knitwear brands with their design aesthetics and technical innovations. The brand has developed an absolutely innovative approach to creating knitwear. Yonetomi Seni Co. has been working for decades creating its own knit textile techniques. As a result of this work “Yonetomi Tweeds” were born – innovative and original knit tweed fabric. The fabric is created by combining various yarns – mixing different fibers, textures and colors.

The knit tweed creates a firm and steady fabric that can be turned into beautiful structured garments.

This is why I love knitwear so much – there are no rules, no boundaries and no limits to what you can do with yarn in your hands! I hope you are inspired to experiment this weekend with your skeins and needles!

Have a great weekend!
