This handcrafted showpiece is knitted by one of five expert knitters in La Bañeza, a small village in Castilla y León. The women decide over their jobs.
As mentioned above, Lana Serena make this part of their collection in collaboration with artisanal knitters in a small village in Castilla y León. Artisan knitting is a slow process, and the women’s knowledge and skills are of crucial importance for the process.
The raw material supports Spanish shepherds and sheep by paying a fair price for the wool that allows them to keep practising transhumance. Why transhumance is so important? Because the quality of the wool depends on how well sheep are feeded. By practising transhumance shepherds guarantee the best grass for their sheep.
Additionally, transhumance has been part of spanish culture since the s. XIV. So it is part of spanish rural cultural heritage.
Lana Serena use spanish merino wool and regenerated italian cashmere. All their knitwear is one hundred percent pure wool. No synthetics. Lana Serena takes pride in being part of the Spanish heritage. The merino wool comes from spanish transhumant herds of sheep.
This product is biodegradable and can be composted in a compost bin with other biodegradable materials when worn out.
By doing all their production in Spain, and sourcing her materials as close to home as possible, Lana Serena saves a lot of travel miles and carbon emissions in the production process. The whole process of shearing, washing, separating and spinning the wool is done in Spain.
All the raw material used for this product is non toxic, no colouring, all natural materials.
Anna, the founder of Lana Serena, discovered that Spanish shepherds were discarding the wool or selling it at a loss. Spanish wool had been an extremely precious commodity and a source of wealth and tradition. And today it seemed that it no longer had value. She thought the balance between animals, shepherds and countryside was breaking. And it was followed by the destruction of centuries’ old traditions and trades. She therefore decided to connect these resources with the fashion marked and make design with a fashion appeal which at the same time preserved and recovered cultural heritage in a sustainable way.
Each piece is a tribute to the senses and a timeless beauty. Excellence is Lana Serena’s priority. We work with the best materials and workshops to guarantee the highest quality knitwear.
The aim of Lana Serena brand is to create knitwear with a quality superior to what you find on the mass marked. Therefore there are made no compromises in any part of the production process.
