"For most of you Kaffe Fassett will need little introduction. We started our business with Kaffe over 20 years ago, and after all these years, he remains our principal designer. He is widely regarded as one of the world's leading textile artists and is, undoubtedly, one of the world's most original colourists".

Peruvian Connection

Peruvian Connection

peruvian-connection.jpg

Kaffe Fassett's extraordinary vision is in his sense of colour. Through his books, among them Glorious Color, his spirited designs have been a source of inspiration to handknitters, quilters, and needlework artists around the world for more than two decades. Though he has created thousands of sweater and needlepoint kits to complete at home, he has never before designed a true ready-to-wear collection.

After observing Peruvian Connection's work for years, Kaffe came to believe that we shared with him a certain sensitivity to colour and design, and an obsession with the small details of the craft of knitting. In short, he saw in us the ability to preserve in production the atelier character of his art.

Kaffe approached us with the idea of collaborating on a small group of sweaters, interpreting his glorious designs in the Peruvian Connection colour pallet, in shapes our design team felt our PC customers would love. The skilled Andean artisans who knit for us would produce these gorgeous art-knits.

We're very pleased and proud of the results, and are happy to offer these uniquely beautiful sweaters - the kind you'd normally see only as one-of-a-kind pieces in an artist's studio.

Kaffe Video Interview

Kaffe Video Interview

video.jpg

Last year a TV company visited the Studio from Denmark to interview Kaffe. The programme is more of a biography on Kaffe, looking at where he is coming from as an artist and his ideas for inspiration. The film is also a rare inside look at Kaffe's studio and home.

We get many requests to visit the studio, but sadly when we are home - we have to hit the road running with deadlines. So this programme will give you a glimpse of what's behind the front doors.

KAFFE ON COLOR

• Don't be afraid of colour - why limit yourself to just one shade of red when you can use seventeen? Layering colours will give your work resonance, so strive for a rich texture, even if it's worked in fifty shades of gray.

• Let your yarns inspire you. Make collections of yarn and display them...
