Emdal Colorknit was founded in 2007 by the danish textile artist: Signe Emdal.
Signe calls herself ”a channel”, or ”a translator”, when she works with interpretations of historical sources for various clients, art-projects/installations and her own product –range of knitted accessories. She is also known as the ”hug-maker”, cause of her SCARF called: ”A wearable hug”.
Emdal Colorknit factory is located next to the ocean, with an old-school industrial production of knitted textiles & artistic approach. The slow production-method of the knitted textiles is a consious choice and a mindful approach to daily life.
Signe & the machine is a rare combination of feminine soft energy & masculin hard steel. She only uses the softest natural yarns, and make people fall in love with their knitted precious scarves. Beauty is a key-word in Signe´s work. Her life is about contributing with “beautifulness & calmness” as she likes to describe it.
