Cologne-based designers Caroline and Christian Brockmeyer are passionate about sustainable, natural wools, and their KARAKORAM hats meet the challenges of winter with integrity and beauty. Using carefully sourced high-quality fibres, each piece is made by a social enterprise supporting women to earn a fair wage through meaningful work (every tag bears its knitter’s name). Only the time consuming and skilful craft of hand knitting could do justice to the quality yarns developed by KARAKORAM, yielding lively texture, timeless design and luxuriant warmth you’ll treasure for many years.
