Friday Knitting Inspiration. Coohem.

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 knitwear created with this fabric is absolutely fascinating! Classic knit tweed jackets, vests, dresses, sweaters and skirts…

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!

    You find the most amazing designers! I love the structure of these knits.

      Yes, I fell in love with structure as well. Usually knitwear drapes and “flows” around the body, so this technology of knit tweed is really intriguing!

      I am glad you love it, Debbie! I love this jacket as well, it has this vintage look around it and is very similar to classic Chanel.

    Ooh, the texture!! this is really inspiring, I bet that something similar could be achieved in hand knitting with holding different types of yarn together. Magic!

      Absolutely! Hand knitting doesn’t have any boundaries at all!! Except for the time of course…
