Hania by Anya Cole is a knitwear collection, knitted entirely by hand in New York City. The brand create luxurious, timeless designs for women, men and children from specially twisted yarns from Italian and Scottish cashmere. The collection of sweaters, cardigans, wraps and accessories feature deeply textured patterns of bobbles, ribs, cables and lace, beautifully expressed through a monochromatic palette of pastels and rich earthy tones. The collection has a retro aesthetic reminiscent of both the late 80’s dance movie Dirty Dancing, and Jacky Kennedy’s all American easy weekend dressing, with oversized sweaters accompaniment to dancers tights and comfy leggings. Simple shapes keep the focus on the rich textural patterns, fine hand knitting, and luxurious cashmere yarns.
HANIA celebrate traditional crafts, while supporting local communities. Beginning with a single knitter, the brand has grown to over a hundred knitters, spread across the five boroughs. Knitters come to them with a range of skills, learned from mothers and grandmothers, which they build upon by sharing contemporary techniques, stitches and designs, enabling them to become skilled artisans, working at the highest levels of craftsmanship.
