Holzweiler teams up with Skappel for an exclusive collaboration
Keeping it in the family has become an integral part of Holzweiler's identity, and with their latest collaboration being with none other than Norwegian knitwear brand Skappel (which is run by Dorthe Skappel, mother of Maria Skappel Holzweiler), the close-to-home identity is strengthened. Skappel has managed over the course of eight years triggered and revitalised Norway's love of knitting and knitwear heritage. Skappel has made the impossible, possible - made old techniques cool again, whilst offering a subtle helping hand with knitting patterns for those just getting into the artistry of knitting
"We have been wanting to collaborate with Skappel for a long time, but the timing was too perfect to ignore with our AW19 Log On / Log Off theme, knitting is truly an activity embodying the concept of logging off," said Susanne Holzweiler.
For the forthcoming collection, Holzweiler and Skappel have created three products together, "Bird" which will be available in two colourways and can be worn front-to-back with one side representing Holzweiler and the other representing Skappel. The final piece of the collection is the "Beryll" knit which can be bought as a knit-it-yourself DIY-style project or you can buy the finished product.
