Our technically challenging knits require an expert hand. Working with collectives of master-female knitters in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Romania, Turkey, and Sri Lanka, our knits help to protect, promote and preserve the handcrafts of female knitters.
Purchasing a Michaela Buerger knit brings new value to traditional craft, not only helping to create better conditions for those making our pieces - often women in rural communities - this investment also enables the continual transfer of artisan skills from generation to generation, helping to ensure a career in craft can still be a viable and desirable profession. Keeping culturally important artisan processes alive is ever more critical in a faster and ever-more automated world.
Drawing on traditional Alpine knit techniques, when garments were made to be warm but also to be durable, helps to ensure that our knits are built to last. The most sustainable way to buy fashion is to buy less but better.
