Amimono by Helga Isager

HelgaWith her brand Amimono Helga Isager has since 2005 been part of renewing knitting both as a craft and as a fashion phenomenon. Her ability to place traditional knitting techniques in a contemporary context paired with her curious exploration of the never ending possibilities hidden in a ball of yarn and a set of knitting needles, has evoked a response particularly with the younger audience. Throughout the years Helga Isager has given numerous classes in both Denmark and Sweden, just as she has worked as a guest teacher at Skals – Højskolen for Design og Håndarbejde.

Helga Isager is the author of several knitting books published in both Denmark and internationally. In 2013 the Swedish publishers Natur & Kultur (Nature & Culture) published her book Finstickat. Today the book is translated into several languages.
