Slow fashion is gaining more and more ground and fits completely into sustainable thinking.
VEST, Veerle Stubbe's Belgian knitwear collection, is a fine example of sustainability and creativity. Her hand-knit sweaters, cardigans and accessories are statement pieces to be enjoyed for seasons to come. VEST reduces the concept of luxury to its essence.
After all, a sweater or cardigan requires 8 hours of manual labor. Thanks to a team of knitters, she can now keep up with demand.
Each item is a unique display of craftsmanship.
Materials and Process
The VEST collection consists of hand-knit sweaters, cardigans, scarves and hats. The pieces are made with the most beautifull yarns from Italy, including merino wool and a soft composition of mohair and silk.
To ensure the versatility and creativity of the collection, they also have items that are machine knitted in addition to the hand knitted pieces.
About the founder
Veerle Stubbe, mother of two young adult sons, started her career in fashion later on. She wanted to pursue the creative path, but due to circumstances, this dream did not become a reality until later. The ticking of knitting needles is one of her earliest memories of her mother and grandmother. After several wanderings, including a patchwork store with workshop, she decided three years ago to launch her own artisan knitwear collection: VEST.
