Phat knits

Phat knits by Bauke Knottnerus

Visitors of the exhibition Unravel. Knitwear in Fashion will be amazed to discover the work of Rotterdam based artist and designer Bauke Knottnerus in the entrance hall of the museum. His so-called Phat Knits (large-scale knitted design elements) is an enlarged gradient knitwork. The tubes in these pieces were entirely knitted by the East-Flanders family company Cousy, one of the last knitting firms in Belgium still active in the fashion sector. The yarns for these elements were produced by the Italian thread company Zegna Baruffa, represented by Woolmark.
