Genevieve Sweeney launched her eponymous knitwear brand in 2015. Made exclusively in the UK, Genevieve Sweeney is writing a new chapter for the knitwear industry, marrying contemporary design with exceptional hand finishes. Indebted to the time-honoured techniques of artisan makers, the brand has reimagined the possibilities of knitwear.
While working in knitwear design and development for luxury brands across the globe, Genevieve gained a unique insight into the dialogue between designer and maker. Inspired by the relationships she built with local British mills and suppliers, the Genevieve Sweeney brand was born.
Colour blocking, clean lines and unusual yarn blends define the Genevieve Sweeney aesthetic, while geometric hand intarsia jumpers have become a brand signature. This handcrafted technique threads a unique narrative through each individual piece. Complex jacquards and metallic accents sit amongst muted tones and natural fibres for timeless unisex pieces that defy seasonal trends.
With a naturally innovative approach to knitwear design, Genevieve Sweeney creates custom yarn blends, sources British spun natural fibres as well as selecting eco and sustainable blends from Italy. Each piece is finished by hand with uncompromising attention to detail, transforming every day knitwear into a premium investment piece.
Genevieve Sweeney is committed to sustainability and collaborates closely with manufacturers across the UK. With the fashion industry now placing great importance on provenance, Genevieve Sweeney embraces the ethical practices and responsibilities of a premium British brand.
