Knitting Legends is a company built on the value of handmade, having spent more than thirty years perfecting the art of high-quality woollen products.
Their line of sustainable woollen apparel is designed in Toronto and handmade by craftswomen in the Himalayas. These artisans have over 30 years of experience, and are able to earn a respectable living bringing Knitting Legends’ designs to life. Their partnership represents a symbiotic relationship between designer and creator, one which empowers both parties.
When we work together we get to empower one another —
Knitting Legends designs their products (with love!) in Toronto. They visit their team of craftspeople every year to ensure these concepts are created beautifully, using ethically sourced raw materials. The team must approve each sample, testing the colour, texture and quality to ensure it meets their standards. Once the samples are approved, production starts and the magic begins.
Knitting Legends celebrates the mystic culture of Nepal and Tibet through supporting local artisans. Their team of craftspeople are a mix of local residents from Nepal and Tibet whose communities have been perfecting the art of knitting for generations. These skills thrive in the Himalayas as part of a handmade culture, one which celebrates both the past legacies and present innovations of this beautiful land.
