Helga Isager is a Danish knit designer that we at Önling are particularly fond of. Her exciting designs and technical challenges are inspiring for any knitting enthusiast. She is among our favorite designers because the dares to try new combinations, both in terms of techniques and yarn types. In the book K(Knit) she has for instance combined Japanese Cotton and Silk Mohair, which gives a unique look and structure.
Helga Isager founded her own brand Amimono in 2005, after her application for the Danish Design Academy had been rejected. You can read more about Helga Isager and her inspiration to start her own brand in our blog post "Inspiration from Helga Isager". Amimono is today very successful and has published books in more than 5 languages.
At Önling we have several times been so fortunate to host visits and workshops with the inspiring designer, when she has for instance visited our showroom to show her latest designs and publications.
