LAINE MAGAZINE Issue 15
The new era of Laine is here! Our beloved magazine is taking a step into a more modern, dynamic direction by celebrating knitwear and the world of fibre in a fresh way.
The magazine has a new look that was created by Kyiv-born Marina Veziko, one of Finland’s leading designers and the Graphic Designer of the Year 2021. While the war continues in Ukraine, we are prouder than ever to support Ukraine and its people.
We are also excited to introduce new, regular articles, such as Jeanette Sloan’s Fibre Talks. Of course, there are also things that won’t change: gorgeous knitwear patterns, beautiful high-quality photography, and the familiar size, all elements Laine is known for.
To celebrate the new look, we have TWO covers available. Choose your favourite. But hurry, the exclusive black-and-white cover is a limited edition!
