Today we’re proud to raise the curtain on our very first printed knitting book — the first installment in a project we call CAPSULE. This new series gives a single designer the stage to present a whole fashion story told in Brooklyn Tweed wool. Our house team polishes the patterns and Jared photographs the garments, but the most exciting part of all is that each CAPSULE collection is offered as a high-quality bound book. (Each of the patterns is also available for individual download as usual, too!)
We couldn’t be more thrilled that Olga Buraya-Kefelian agreed to be our very first CAPSULE designer. Her garments and accessories are distinctive and architectural, avant-garde yet always wearable.
Olga’s capsule collection for Brooklyn Tweed is inspired by the years she spent in Japan and reflects her interest in texture and geometry. From dense cables to airy open lace, she explores the full range of possible fabrics that our woolen-spun Shelter and Loft yarns can create. The eight designs she has created for her CAPSULE are inventive modern garments that will bring a jolt of energy to your wardrobe.
We’ve spent time and care in bringing our first printed publication into the world and we are so excited to share it with you. The 128-page book includes 8 original knitwear patterns from Olga as well as a glossary of special techniques used in each design and lush photographic spreads of the collection. Printed in the USA at a press powered by 100% renewable energy, CAPSULE is an FSC-certified publication which ensures that all the paper fibers used in production are sourced from well-managed and responsibly harvested forests that meet strict environmental standards.
We’ve also created a digital lookbook as a way to introduce you to the designs in the collection. We hope you enjoy our first adventure in print, and can’t wait to hear your feedback. Happy knitting!
