Interpretations Vol. 6 is another magical and heartfelt collaboration between Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki. Like each Volume before, the 6th Volume includes six themes, six words with two designs inspired by each word, showing a personal take on each of these themes.

This year the photo shoot was set in charming Barcelona and we had the honor to have Jonna Hietala taking all the pictures for this book.

Starting over takes courage as does learning new things and techniques. Sometimes the biggest step is to trust the subtle beauty of a simple cowl.

High contrast and graphic lines shake this squishy cowl in constant movement. Syncopated brioche stitch is easy to work and gives a stunning crisp striped pattern for the cowl. Moonquake is a perfectly stylish accessory for city weekends or country getaways!
