This jacket was designed by Geske who trained at the School of Decorative Art (now Denmark’s Design School) in Copenhagen during the 1970’s. Following graduation, she worked in her studio with tapestry, lace-making, and machine embroidery.
This jacket is inspired by a men's jacket from the beginning of the 18th century with inserted piece in slits front and back. The pattern is from a jacket from the 1760s.
“The craftsmanship -- the process of working with my knitting machine to discover what it can do -- to the nurturing and development of a small detail of a design -- this is what fascinates me”.
Geske’s objective is to create high quality, timeless designs that can be worn year after year.
The jacket is knitted in 100% merino in jaquard technology, ie. double stitch without wires on the backside of multicolor vest.
The jacket must be hand washed gently and put on a terry towel for drying.
