About Onika-Knitwear

Onika-Knitwear embraces the art of slow fashion, weaving a tapestry of timeless designs, sustainable practices, and a deep respect for the heritage of handcrafted garments. With each creation, we strive to make a positive impact on both our customers and the environment, reflecting the values that define our brand's philosophy.

Based in Salzburg, Austria, Onika-Knitwear is a slow fashion brand that emerged in early 2022, upholding a cherished family tradition and perpetuating the craft through generations. 

Onika-Knitwear embodies craftsmanship, sustainability, and elegant simplicity in its designs. 

"The enduring beauty of my grandmother's handcrafted garments, which have gracefully withstood the test of time and changing fashion trends, became the profound inspiration behind the creation of Onika-Knitwear.

I cherish the quality and timeless patterns that were passed down through generations, some of which I still keep in my closet today. Witnessing the durability and value of artisanal clothing has always fascinated me.

Having learned knitting techniques from a young age, I feel honored to carry on the tradition of handmade craftsmanship and preserve these precious patterns for the future."

At the heart of Onika-Knitwear lies a profound set of values that revolve around traditions, sustainability and conscious consumption. 

TRADITIONAL CRAFT: Each piece is handmade, preserving the craft by hand and patterns through generations.

NATURAL, ORGANIC MATERIAL: Our knitwear is crafted from premium, polyester-free yarns, produced in a certified factory in Italy known for its commitment to sustainability.

The yarn we use is 100% mulesing-free and sheep-friendly, meeting rigorous certification standards.

Continuing our journey towards sustainability, we are actively working to increase the presence of organic wool in our knitwear line, offering you garments that are as kind to the environment as they are to your sense of style.

FEMALE FOUNDED: The brand is proudly founded and led by women, all the garments are made by the skilled hands of women.

LOCAL PRODUCTION: By keeping our production local is a choice that not only aligns with sustainability, but also supports our skilled communities. By empowering and valuing the talents of women within our local networks, we contribute to a more inclusive and equitable society.

Currently our knitwear is handmade in Austria and we aim to keep all the production in Europe.

LIMITED EDITION: We produce in small quantities, focus on quality over quantity. We love to celebrate the slow fashion and handmade craft.

TIMELESS DESIGN: Our designs are crafted to be versatile and enduring, transcending seasonal trends for a wardrobe staple that lasts.
