Giannina Capitani, based in London but of Italian-Scottish ancestry, established her brand Giannina Capitani Ltd in 2013. Her heritage forms an important part of her design philosophy, which focuses on juxtapositions of bold colourful imagery with the luxuriousness of tactile knitwear, creating a delightful sensory experience. Capitani's Dalston based studio is perfectly situated in the creative heart of London's East End, enabling her to draw influence from fellow creatives and artists, as well as the vibrancy and life of the capital. All her products are hand made from 100% lambs wool, staying true to the Scottish textile tradition. Giannina Capitani sources only the highest quality materials from within the UK and produces ethically, in opposition to excessive consumerism, and to ensure that she creates pieces which have a timeless appeal and will last for years to come.
