A chat with knitwear specialist Cécile Feilchenfeldt at Spinexpo Shanghai, Paris, New York Spring 2019


Dear Shaded Viewers,

Cécile Feilchenfeldt learned how to knit as a child from her grandmother and has been experimenting with knitting techniques ever since. Her speciality is to combine traditional knit techniques with new fibers creating astonishing results. Her materials are both luxurious and raw.  I met Cécile Feilchenfeldt  at Maison d’Exceptions at Premier Vision a year ago and fell under the spell of her creative genius and am looking forward to meeting her again at Premier Vision in their February edition at Parc des Epositions Paris Nord Villepinte between 13-15.

The Spinexpo Paris focused on yarns from China.
