The Small Business Sessions by Enterprise Nation:
The designer breathing new life in to UK knitwear
As a member of Enterprise Nation and attendee of their GoGlobal trade missions, I was offered the opportunity to talk in The Small Business Sessions Podcast. Discussing Genevieve Sweeney, my journey so far, my passion for manufacturing within the UK and the support of Enterprise Nation; listen to the podcast here….
Here is the feature below:
“Enterprise Nation Classic member Genevieve Sweeney founded her UK manufactured premium knitwear brand when her passion found a new mission. A life long knitter, she started restoring old machinery and was introduced to a network of amazing knitters who were forced out of the industry after factories closed.
The young entrepreneur now works with family run mills to create her contemporary designs and is breathing new life in to a traditional practice. This session is an inspiring example of the power and strength of what can be created when people who are really passionate about what they do, work together. “
