SHANGHAI KNITWEAR RENAISSANCE (English and Chinese Version)
Tamara McCombe May 12, 2014
In Shanghai, another Italian-instigated Renaissance is emerging. A knitwear Renaissance, which goes by the name of EK Reversible.
The co-founder Emily Keller is a New Yorker who grew up in a family of busy hands and entrepreneurial minds: her father built electric cars and recently started his own business in robotics, whilst her grandmother and mother are both excellent seamstresses who supported Keller when, at a young age, she began sewing her own patterns. They could hardly have hoped for such a passionate creative in the family.
Who Made Your Clothes
Tamara McCombe February 19, 2014
Co-founders of EK Reversible, Emily Keller and Manuel Garcia, are aiming high, they want to “revolutionise the fashion industry” in a number of ways. EK sources yarn locally from reputable mills near Shanghai, in Zhejiang Province, whilstalso watching the brand’s carbon footprint by preferring to do things locally. What is more, every single garment is reversible, so for every one garment, you get two looks. In an interview for AnyWearStyle.com, Keller further emphasised “Every piece is more useful and meaningful and therefore encouraging people to keep their clothing longer. Second, we are using fewer natural resources less energy to create“more”, and effectively reducing our material usage by 50% per garment, consequently creating less waste.”

Time Out Shanghai
February 22, 2014
Nature has the broadest range of patterns and colours, so it’s there that I look for inspiration for our prints. One of my favourites is the reptile-skin pattern, which we’ve replicated in various colours on a dress and a jacket – it’s bold, fun and sexy. I also really like the textured dots stitch: polka dots can be very traditional, very ‘cute’, so presenting the pattern in terms of a 3D texture is a way of reinventing it.....
