Hohoho Merry Christmas!

Hohoho Merry Christmas!

07/12/2017

It is that wonderful time of year again! That time when family and friends get together for a nice and cosy meal with a little bit of champagne (and/or wine) and of course a lot of presents! The LNKNITS team got together at Hemmat (go check it out on www.hemmatantwerp.com) and celebrated Christmas a little bit early this year. For the occasion we all got dressed up and used a beautiful LNKNITS piece as a festive accessory. Have a look and get yourself into the Christmas spirit! A couple of presents underneath the Christmas tree. From LNKNITS, of course (what else?!). Ellen and Lucy arrived first. Ellen was twinning with her mini-me. How cute is that? Ellen: Cosy Charlotte in New Light Grey Lucy: Cosy Charlene (kids) in Sky Blue  Charlotte finishing up on the final touches of the cosy Christmas table. Charlotte: Big Bertha in Black Eva, stylish as…

Sometimes there are certain customers that come by the LN Knits Flagshipstore that often that you start to recognise their faces. And because I haven’t been working for LN for a very long time (however, more than 4 months already! Time flies!), getting to know the customers is one of my favourite parts of the job. I reached out to a lovely young woman that I suspect is a bit of a DIY addict. Tineke was more than happy to meet with me for this very last blogpost in the series “LN Fans in the spotlight” of FW17/18. Let me introduce you to this 26-year old woman from Antwerp, who is also the mother of a cute little guy called Cédric, who just turned one. Tineke’s story starts with a friend of a friend, who owned a beautiful scarf that she absolutely fell in love with. Guess which brand it…

You may not know it, but when you buy something from our collection, you do not only spoil yourself but you will make +350 people (and not to forget the environment!) very happy. How is this possible? We would like to introduce you to the 5 core values of LNKnits so you can get to know our brand a little bit better. 1. Humane Did you know all of our items are made by more than 350 women in Peru? They work in a fair, humane and sustainable environment. No child labour, human exploitation or bad conditions. We even created daily childcare facilities so our ladies know that their children are taken care of while they work on our beautiful hand-knitted clothes.   2. Honest We do not only try to create the best possible working environment for our ladies, we also pay them fair and honest wages. These are work…

And then it’s time for the last blog post in this series (for now!) of happy customers. Some time ago, Wai Lam hurried after work to meet me in the LN Knits Flagshipstore. But who is this lovely lady? Wai Lam is a graphic designer from Merksem with a love for big and warm scarves. “I’ve always been in love with big scarves. I think small and light scarves don’t fit well and don’t really have a purpose. One time I saw this big and cosy scarf at a friend’s place and immediately wanted one like it.” And that’s how Wai Lam got in contact with LN Knits. She saw, she looked up, she fell in love. What she loves most about LN Knits is the timelessness and the way the scarves and vests fit with almost every outfit. This was five years ago already, so she has been a…

In the first blogpost of this series we introduced you to Marta, an Italian woman who moved to Belgium and fell in love with our warm and cosy knits. Today, it’s Caroline’s turn. Contrary to Marta, Caroline was born and raised in Antwerp. She works in politics, better said as a social media manager and has been fan of LN since the early days. “I think it was through one of Ellen’s Facebook posts. Because of that post, I bought a snood and beanie and that was it, I became addicted.” Since then, Caroline has been following LN’s journey. “I think LN Knits is one of the first brands in Belgium that became big thanks to social media and I think that’s a pretty interesting strategy.” Something else Caroline finds interesting is the sustainability factor. “I’m pretty concerned about sustainability. That’s also why I work in politics. We have it…

How would we describe the perfect autumn day? Let’s see… A little sun would be nice, but rather not too warm because we love to wear our cosy knits. And maybe some company? There’s almost nothing more fun than spending a Sunday with your best friends in the woods. Catching up while walking along trees coloured with different hues of orange, red and yellow. Drinking some tea afterwards to finish your day and to warm up a little also sounds amazing, right? That’s what we thought and also why a group of our friends did just that. We’ll let the images speak for themselves. Enjoy this lovely season, folks!

Belgian Fashion Day

Belgian Fashion Day

Cosmopolitan once wrote that Antwerp is the fifth fashion capital of the world. As a Belgian brand based in Antwerp, we are very proud to hear this and we can’t support other Belgian brands enough. In honour of ‘Belgian Fashion Day’ we would like to introduce you to five of our favourite Belgian fashion brands that you can combine perfectly with (an) LNKnits item(s). Some of the brands you might know from the yearly ‘Behold the Belgian Bunch’ pop-up in our store. 1. Love Sundaily Love Sundaily is a brand that only produces clothing in velours.

Both items have an oversized, yet classy and trendy look. To make the look complete wear a Perle…
