Operasinger <---> Knitter
In the early 80-ties I studied embroidery and started my knitting business Knitwit Design. In no time my sweaters were hot and I knitted hundreds of sweaters/cardigans.
In the mid 80ties I started to take singing lessons and I graduated in 1992 as an opera singer.
All the time I financed my singing education by knitting lots and lots of sweaters.
Immediately I was given a contract for the lead part of Carlotta Giudicelli in the Dutch production of Phantom of the Opera and after singing this part appr. 600 times I moved to Germany to make my debut as Aida in Aida.
For 20 years I performed all important lead opera roles on the international stages. Although I still knitted for friends the knitting business was sleeping...
Now being an "old diva" I have more time and my old love, knitting, came back into my life.
I love working with lovely materials, soft mohair, silk and alpaca, honest cotton and pure wool. I love creating new models and love that my ideas are still and again fashionable!
All my products are hand made.
I use natural, cruelty-free and environmental friendly produced materials only.
All of my wool is 100% museling free, 100% of our suppliers are either Reach or Oekotex certified for their dyes..
Products are 100% customizable to create your unique garnment.
