Meet Our Slow Fashion Knitwear Artisans
Agen, FRANCE Since 1971
Liliana’s main passion in life is knitting. Together we launched our knitting kit which she hand knots with her superb mohair wool she collects from her goats. You can find more information here.
When she's not knitting, she takes care of her animals, her second passion. In 2001, one of her friends asked her to keep her herd of mohair goats for one season. She discovered an infinite love for them and made her family grow to 70 goats. They live happily in the open air in the fields, are mowed twice a year in October and April. Each animal gives a harvest of 3 and 4 kgs. The fleeces are sent to the mohair cooperative in France, which gathers the harvest of all the small independent breeders. The cooperative's role is to provide all the services necessary for the processing of mohair and to ensure the value and survival of the work of its 130 craftsmen in France. A great story of solidarity and the defence of local know-how!
