039 – Genevieve Sweeney, Knitwear Designer – Building a Premium British Knitwear Brand

Genevieve Sweeney Knitwear designer

In this episode of the Make it British podcast I discuss a love of knitwear, in particular the lost art of hand-intarsia, with Genevieve Sweeney.

Genevieve trained as a knitwear designer, and after working for several well-known brands, she took the plunge and set up her own label – Genevieve Sweeney – which she describes as ‘Premium British Knitwear’.

To find out more about Genevieve and to see her fantastic knitwear, go to genevievesweeney.com
