BIRKEN is a small label run by Erica Hogenbirk. She learned to knit at an early age and discovered the possibilities of this old technique through the years. She graduated at the school of arts for fashiondesign. Started as a handknitter and now mainly working on a knittingmachine. Computer made prints turn into soft and colorful products. Inspiration is found in nature, architecture and every day life. These influences are photographed and translated into dessins and knits. The process of making each item takes quite some time and these slow made products are created by her hand. The focus is on ensuring the knitted products are beautifully made and timeless for the consious consumer.
