A status story by Dutch knitwear brand 'Flocks'

Knitwear brand Flocks gives
customers details about the individual animal that provided the wool for their sweaters and mittens.
Every item in young Dutch designer,
Christien Meindertsmas
collection can be traced back to its source. Since one sheep supplies exactly enough wool for one sweater, each sweater is tagged with a specific animals ID number, and comes with a certificate: the animal's passport. Information provided includes breed, weight, year,place of birth and a picture of the sheep.

I love this interpretation of knit, what could possibly be a new trend in interiors, these exhibits certainly live up to their exhibition title, PHAT KNITS!

PHAT KNITS, is a series of giant threads used to create,
knitted or not, interior products......
according to the talented artist, Bauke Knottnerus.
