ALL Knitwear is a small, vertically integrated knitwear label created by Annie Larson. The slow-growing, idiosyncratic collection of handmade sweaters and hats is an ongoing study of color and pattern realized in a series of simple shapes. Each sweater is organized to show the special rapport between its visual components. Operating on a made-to-order basis, she knits each piece in her studio before shipping to customers all over the world.
Annie was born in 1983 (Seoul) and grew up in rural Wisconsin. She lived in Minneapolis for several years, where she attended the University of Minnesota for apparel design and later went on to work in the industry. She purchased her first knitting machine in 2009 and is considered to be self-taught. In 2010, ALL Knitwear was established in a Minneapolis storefront apartment where the first days of making sweaters were situated next door to a puppet theater and beneath good friends. Annie moved the company to New York in 2011, settling into a studio in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.
