NIwaki's new Kanata Knit Cardigan

Hand knitted in British Columbia by cult Canadian cardigan maker Kanata Knits, known for their “toasty” handmade Cowichan-inspired sweaters.

The design is by London-based illustrator and author Natsko Seki, who “lives in a permanent state of imaginary landscapes” Seki is inspired by flora and fauna, buildings, people of different cultures and has illustrated for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Phaidon Press and Hermes.

The big, chunky, and extremely toasty garment is made from 100% wool, has a two-way zip and comes in sizes S to XL. According to Niwaki, sizes and stitch pattern may vary slightly and they are expected to stretch over time. The cardigan comes packaged in a special edition tote design by Seki.
