After leaving Art college in the early 1980’s janeyB worked for a number of acclaimed knitwear and clothing designers in London, ensuring the highest quality, production and development for these luxury brands which sold worldwide. During these years she gained a unique insight into what makes an exceptional crafted hand knitted garments. Over the past few years she has been busy raising a family and studying for a Masters Degree in Cultural Astronomy & Astrology. This lead to writing research papers on esoteric subjects and presenting them at University Conferences all over Europe. However, janeyB had remained passionate about the fashion industry and missed working in a creative environment surrounded by beautiful products. So to get back in the game she got to work establishing a cottage industry of experienced knitters and began fashioning her dream. Remodelling vintage knitting patterns, a superior finish along with sumptuously blended yarns encompass the janeyB vision as a brand signature.
A janeyB is created employing hand dyed blended yarns, including British spun Blue Faced Leicester, Silk, Cashmere, alpaca and cotton. Each knit is skilfully made by hand with absolute attention to detail from each member of the janey B team of artisan knitters, transforming everyday knitwear into an exceptionally unique investment.
With the fashion industry placing huge importance on source and origin, the team at janeyB is committed to sustainability and collaborates closely with manufacturers across Britain to bring you an honest, hand crafted, premium hand knit.
We hope that you love janeyB knitwear as much as we do. We want you to enjoy our beautiful knits and to have the best possible shopping experience.
