Preila: Sea Salt Merino Wool Cardigan
This cardigan is our ode to Preila, a tiny village located on the Curonian Spit between the Curonian Lagoon and the Baltic Sea. The deep blues, warm browns, and pale whites are colors inspired by the beautiful pastel shades of coastal Lithuanian towns.
100% Merino Wool. Cruelty free.
For this knit we partnered up with a family-run knitwear factory in Šiauliai, a small town in Northern Lithuania. The owner of the factory is Mrs. Zina who founded the company over 30 years ago. Growing up she always dreamt of becoming an orchestra conductor, but running a factory as beautifully as she does might not be that far off. Today Mrs. Zina employs over 20 women from the local community who all refer to her as a mother figure. All her employees earn a living wage and are entitled to 4 weeks of annual paid leave, 24 months of paid maternity leave and paid sick leave. Each knit comes signed by a woman who made it.
Model is wearing a size M.
