Handmade Knitwear

Our sustainable knitwear collection consists of carefully selected, unique pieces that are entirely hand-knitted and hand-embroidered, bringing back the slow and precise art of handmade fashion, luxurious feels of the highest quality materials, and unique knitting patterns and details.

The selection is a combination of pieces designed by us in PÆTRIA_design and made ethically by our precious knitters in central Serbia, as well as a collaboration with the designer Marijana Andric from Maridruna* – a sustainable and small-scale Serbian knitwear brand that creates luxury pieces while promoting ethical responsibility. Maridruna collaborates with a community of knitters, some with over 60+ years of experience. Together, they focus on every fibre type, texture, and twist in the yarn to deliver a luxury handmade product with a contemporary design.

    Maud is a fully hand-knitted, sturdy jacket, made in 100% organic, mulesing-free, and naturally dyed wool. The fluffy loops in black and white wool require a very precise and time-consuming knitting technique, but result in a gorgeous voluminous silhouette and a long-lasting, high-quality garment. The yarn Maud is made of is both hand-pulled and handspun, which creates the perfect thickness and feel of every single thread. Invisible inside clasps make it possible to button up the jacket.  

    Maud is proudly designed and created by the female knitters of Sirogojno, a small community of several generations of highly skilled artisans whose craftsmanship was recognized worldwide and loved and worn by, among others, Nancy Raegan, Jovanka Broz, Raisa Gorbachev, Liv Ullmann, and the British Queen.
