hatsumi knits is an artisan knitwear label founded by Nicola Camporeale in 2015.
it is inspired by the Japanese aesthetic of simple, subtle and unobtrusive beauty. All items are handmade in Melbourne, Australia from locally-sourced natural materials like wool, cotton and bamboo.
we believes there is beauty in imperfection. All pieces are unique and special. They are designed to last a lifetime, and with a little TLC can be passed down to future generations.
we also care about the planet. In an effort to minimise waste, all left over yarn is used to create new and exciting one-off garments and accessories.
hatsumi focuses on quality and craftsmanship, and provides an alternative to mass-produced and disposable fashion.
