Inspired by the world’s rich mosaic of traditional handicrafts whose origins date back to the Middle Ages, Lowie re-interprets these time-honoured practices in a totally modern way. Hand-knitting, crochet, hand-embroidery and hand-stitching are incorporated into almost every piece in the Lowie collection.
Started in 2002 by designer Bronwyn Lowenthal, Lowie’s philosophy is to produce beautiful clothing people want to wear as ethically as possible without jeopardising design. ‘We aim to pay our hand makers and small manufacturers a decent price, while small production runs ensure each piece is a limited edition’, says Lowenthal.
Using only the finest soft wools, luxurious organic cottons and eco-friendly leathers with minimal chemicals used in the tanning process, Lowie consistently produces a tight collection of sought-after pieces.
From label staples like hand-customised man style caps, vintage scarf inspired accessories and classic tea dresses, to highlight pieces such as low carbon alpaca berets and delicate mohair fingerless gloves, Lowie is firmly becoming established as a truly unique knitwear label.
Worn by fashionistas like Luella Bartley, Erin O'Connor, Lily Cole, Fearne Cotton and fashion-forward individuals like you, each Lowie customer appreciates the time, thought and effort that have gone into each high quality, quirky piece.
Lowie is sold online at www.ilovelowie.com and in boutiques throughout the UK and around the world.
