Just a little over a month ago, we published TRAVEL: A Book for Makers, Adventurers and Sustainablists. It is certainly no exaggeration to say that this eBook is something I have been dreaming about for the longest time. Here's where you can find it!
Dedicated to all things traveling, making and leading a happy, fulfilling life without missing out on the fun while at the same time treating the world we live in with respect, mindfulness and other creatures and future generations in mind, TRAVEL captures some of the many ways of being more sustainable when traveling and making.
It includes articles on easy ways to travel sustainably by Justine Siegler from Justine Kept Calm and Went Vegan, on curating a sustainable travel wardrobe, including tips on what to bring for your next vacation, by Jana Braumüller, Vreni Jäckle & Nina Lorenzen from Fashion Changers, travel beauty tips by Melinda Dela Costa, a conversation on sustainable making with Ann C. Schönrock from Fashion Fika, a curated collection of questions to consider when planning vacations, lots of insights into our contributor's travel favourites, and thought pieces by Marlies Dachler, Elizabeth Lwanga and Laura Rogers as well as travel-friendly recipes by Susann Probst & Yannik Schon from Krautkopf and Justine Siegler.
A collection of knitwear designs (all of which have been named after community picks of favourite places around the world, by the way!) in a variety of sizes (yes, kids sizes, too!) makes for the ideal travel wardrobe. Many of the knitting patterns in TRAVEL come with instructions for more than one version, making our collection of 9 pieces, ranging from socks, a hot water botle cosy and a llama to neck accessories, a hat and pullovers and cardigans, perfect for knitters who love minimalist, versatile pieces and a lot of options.
All products in the book have been made ethically and sustainably, and there are many fair fashion pieces we absolutely adore. Now without further ado, here are some of my personal favourite styles from the book!
