Children’s knitted fashion from Finland; ‘Northern Nights’ by Nieva

It’s always a pleasure to introduce new Nordic designers of beautiful children’s clothing here on the blog. And what more appropriate with frosty days just around the corner than a brand focusing on delightful knitwear collection called the ‘Northern Nights’?

Nieva means “snowing” in Spanish. The name is in spanish because the founder Aino Korhonen’s husband is from Barcelona and the idea for the company was born while they lived in Spain.

Aino has a MA in fashion design from Aalto University of Art and Design and it was during her studies she fell in love with knitwear. The designer is a mum of two boys and her desire is to create warm yet lightweight knitwear that would be loved by children and their parents alike.

The collection ‘Northern Nights for Autumn Winter 2015 is Nieva’s very first and a gorgeous selection of thoughtful, refined and simple knitwear for children from 9 months up to 4 years. You can enjoy simple knitwear essentials such as wool trousers, sweaters, reversible vest and adorable little baby socks. All made ethically.

This is how Aino explains it; “In Portugal we work with a small traditional workshop in Porto (here we use only Danish yarns), in Bolivia we have a fair-trade certified producer in Cochabamba (Bolivia was chosen for their amazing know-how in knitting and because of the Alpaca yarn that I love. We get the yarn from our producers and this way we can support them in both manufacture and production of raw material) and in Finland we work with individual artisans.”

We hope you will enjoy this little preview as much as we do!
