Sandrine Ganem is a jack of all trades. The daughter of a tailor grew up in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris, worked in advertising, then graphic design before turning her hand to ceramics and launching her eponymous tableware brand. But this was just the beginning. In 2012 she traded in the pottery wheel for a set of knitting needles and Rose Carmine was born. The vibrant, colour-rich knitwear collections for which the brand has become synonymous are entirely knitted by hand in France and Poland by a team of 40 women whose working conditions are fair and ethical. Using natural materials such as mohair, alpaca, cotton and lurex, each piece is knitted to order and takes 2 to 3 days to make. For unique, sustainably made knitwear guaranteed to brighten your winter wardrobe, discover Rose Carmine now available on Smallable.
