Knitluxe Studio is a UK based design studio, creating sophisticated yet playful sports luxe clothing and accessories using ethically sourced and sustainable luxury yarns. The studio aims to challenge and transform the perception of knitted textiles while retaining craftsmanship, traditional techniques mixed with contemporary knitwear designs. It is designed to make the wearer feel powerfully different, maximising the natural performance properties of wool.
Knitluxe Studio has been established by Szilvia Burrows - an award-winning textile designer in Buckinghamshire. Originally from Budapest, Hungary, Szilvia moved to the UK in 2009 to complete a course in Art and Design and went on to complete her degree in Buckinghamshire New University to pursue her dream to be a designer. In 2017 she graduated with First Class Honours and was awarded first prize of the Hill Osborne Bursary by the Worshipful Company of Framework Knitters the same year. In response to her research and passion for Activewear Fashion, she decided to pursue her own vision to create reimagined, sophisticated yet practical and playful sports luxe products.
The accessories range is created with Supergeelong Lambswool, initially for sustainable reasons, however wool has many natural benefits and is one of the world’s most technically advanced fibres working in total harmony with the wearer’s body. Each piece is created and constructed by hand on a 12gg vintage hand flat knitting machine. At all stages, Szilvia is committed to sustainability and only selects high quality traceable luxury yarns.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
