Bare Knitwear was born from a desire to create luxurious, heirloom knitwear while preserving traditional craft and supporting artisan communities.
The first collection was hand knit in 2012, from a small studio on the West Coast of Canada. The search for honest, small-scale production, sustainable fibres, and artisan craftsmanship pointed to the beautiful, rugged landscape of the Peruvian Andes. In 2014, Bare Knitwear products found their home in Ayacucho, Peru.
Proud of the personal relationships the brand has developed with their partners, each Bare Knitwear design is brought to life through heritage artisanship coupled with modern design.
