At Baukjen, we care just as much about what’s used to create our clothes as the people and places where they’re made.
Tracing how materials are grown and fabrics are treated is an important part of the process. So for autumn, sourcing British-grown wool for our jumpers and cardigans is an obvious place to start. This cuts out air miles and offers us greater transparency, and the wool we use is mulesing-free (a procedure which causes unnecessary discomfort to animals).
What have we produced with these local yarns? For traditional knitwear lovers, the cable knit detail of the Gabby Cardigan and Jody Jumper will prove irresistible. Satisfyingly chunky (but not so you can’t layer a coat over the top), these pieces are like central heating for your body. Truly timeless, we like them layered over a frill-collared top such as the Ryleigh Shirt for a feminine flourish.
After a more minimalist design? The Anabelle is a relaxed v-neck in a joyful powder pink desirably muted with flecks of taupe and grey. We love it under a Prince of Wales check blazer when smart layering is on the agenda
