OUR KNITWEAR MAKER.

Bernard is our incredibly talented Knitwear Maker based in Guangdong. Bernard and his team specialise in beautiful lightweight intricate, organic cotton knits suitable for our warm Australian climate.
High quality craftsmanship and excellence in garment production meant that Bernard was encouraged to start his own business in 2009. We began working with Bernard in 2017 to create our Brooklyn, Taylor and cult Cardamon shorts and, more recently our popular Gardenia knit range.
