Life and stuff
Kristel Kuslapuu is a bold, uncompromising and independent post-renaissance knitwear designer originally from the Medieval capital city of Tallinn and currently based in Copenhagen. Her mother is a professional knitter so she followed her legacy and started to knit before she could read. She has been in the industry for the last 10 years which led to a MA degree in fashion design and a vast knowledge in jersey and knitwear. The bijou family business is led by her sister’s boyfriend and her boyfriend’s sister.
Always eager to learn more about slow fashion and a true believer in circular economy. Getting inspired by politics, cliches and irony and for the most part self irony the brand is in constant search for equality. Main goal is supporting a more ethical and inclusive industry. All the collections are made in Europe by small family owned factories either in Estonia, Lithuania or hand made by Kristel Kuslapuu herself. The hand knit sweaters are numbered making them into unique pieces of art. The hand-picked yarns and fabrics used are all ethical and natural. We believe in change and we will go with the change. Join the slow fashion crusade!
