How is Your Bare Knitwear Garment Made?
Conceptualized at our design studio on the West Coast of Canada, each Bare Knitwear garment is thoughtfully designed with a focus on wearability and purpose. Emphasis is placed on producing garments that will seamlessly integrate with your wardrobe and add ease and joy to your life.
Fibre Research & Swatch Development
Once we narrow down our yarn selection swatches are knit in a variety of tensions, stitches and fibres prior to developing the first sample. Occasionally, we will work directly with the yarn distributor to custom develop a fibre blend to better suit the needs of our garments.
Wash & Wear Tests
At this stage, we conduct a garment fitting where we dissect everything about the design. All the feedback from our wash and wear tests is considered and we make our final adjustments. Minor adjustments such as changing the shape of an armhole or adjusting the way the pocket is stitched on the garment can have a big impact on the over all fit, feel and function of the design.
Colour Selection & Development
Our hope is that our natural, muted knits pair easily with any wardrobe. We select our timeless hues to highlight the craftsmanship and texture of the garment.
Ready for Production!
We launch our collections into production six to eight months prior to launching the collection to the public. This provides our manufacturers with long, flexible lead times and ensures each garment is carefully crafted and inspected at each stage of the process. We hope the love, care and thought put into each garment reminds you of where your garment came from and adds ease and joy into your life.
