From Me With Love
We will ship your kit from September 10.
We are excited to announce a cute little design born from the collaboration with our friend Gabi Fontana: From Me with Love.
Gabi not only is the owner of the beautiful Yarn Shop in Lugano (Switzerland) but she is also a fantastic and talented knitter. She was one of the first to jump on the mYak wagon and to believe in us when nobody knew who mYak was. Gabi is now a good friend and part of the mYak family.
We often talked with her about how we draw inspiration from Tibetan culture and lifestyle and how we love the way Tibetan women still wear traditional dresses with an incredible elegance and how they like to combine a darker dress with colorful multi purpose head scarves.
On the Tibetan Plateau the sun is very strong and over time it can also be dangerous at such high altitudes. While men tend to wear hats, women prefer to protect themselves with head scarves.
On the grassland, Tibetans still wear traditional clothes made with local materials but they are also open and curious. They love to combine the wool and the natural colors of the yak with very brilliant and sometimes synthetic fabric they find on the market. It’s quite common to see shiny neon colors, floral prints and geometric patterns all combined together in a shirt over a dark dress or wrapped around their head.
Inspired by this traditional yet modern piece of clothing, we had the idea of creating a versatile, easy knit accessory that can be worn as a headscarf, a foulard , a neck warmer or a headband. We called it From Me with Love and we envision it as a gift of friendship.
