Christa Michel

“Christa Michel Knitwear” sees itself as being a knitwear manufacturing enterprise. On the one hand it is a production site for individual articles and limited editions, but at the same time it is a kind of research laboratory and experimental workshop which repeatedly grapples with the possibilities offered by the medium. “Christa Michel Knitwear” has come to be recognised as a competence centre for specific techniques of computer-supported hand knitting machines, where research is carried on into the cultural memory of knitting. A broad range of products, comprising the areas of design, fashion and accessories, testifies to a lively interest in popular culture and computer aesthetics.
