Luxury knitwear brand Castanea sets out to create knits that are contemporary, feminine & effortless. Spun from only the finest selected cashmere, the collection features shades to flatter every skin tone – Irish designer & NCAD graduate Paula Marron has over a decade’s experience working with knitted cashmere and it’s this remarkable fibre that plays the central role in the brands philosophy.
Handmade in Nepal using the most expert of craftsmanship, each piece is individually knit to shape and linked together by hand. From beginning to end, each piece goes through a meticulous process of hand finishing. “The process of knitting has always fascinated me. The mediative repetition, the progression of clean lines, the manipulated form & finally the luxurious touch”
