MIRIAM LENARTS | STUDIO MYR
STUDIO MYR is the young knitwear label of designer Miriam Lenarts. From an unstoppable passion for craft, design and textile, she designs unique collections for both men and women. Pure materials are being transformed in a pure, timeless style. Her products are being defined by refine- ment, elegance and playfulness. With her contem- porary designs, Miriam wants to give a new definition to the ancient craft of knitting. She wants to make pure products on a small scale in a tradi-tional way, using only first class, natural yarns, that are being obtained with respect for men and nature. The knitwear is being produced in Holland, according to the "zero waste" principle. The designs are timeless and not subjected to fashion trends.
"I always have been fascinated by creating beauty out of seemingly nothing. As a child I made for my Barbies weddingdresses out of paper doilies, and rain coats out of little plastic bags. I still have that alchemical feeling as I sit behind my knitting machine, and watch garments emerge from a single thread."
