The Small Business Sessions: The designer breathing new life in to UK knitwear

Posted: Wed 20th Jul 2016

It's time for episode 10 of our podcast, the Small Business Sessions.

Enterprise Nation Classic member Genevieve Sweeney founded her UK manufactured premium knitwear brand when her passion found a new mission. A life long knitter, she started restoring old machinery and was introduced to a network of amazing knitters who were forced out of the industry after factories closed.

The young entrepreneur now works with family run mills to create her contemporary designs and is breathing new life in to a traditional practice. This session is an inspiring example of the power and strength of what can be created when people who are really passionate about what they do, work together.
