Finest cashmere wool meets stylish design – PAPA LOBSTER & Gretas Schwester, a Match made in Heaven!
What do you get when designer duo PAPA LOBSTER teams up with Berlin-based illustrator Gretas Schwester? Definitely something great: delicate illustrations on fine cashmere wool create the most beautiful parts of the season.
Especially now that fall has come along with its icy cold breeze, delicate baby and kids skin longs for pieces like this. The cashmere wool not only feels super soft, but also has great warming qualities. The noble natural fiber is also easier to maintain than you might think – in contrast to all the prejudices. Liquids and dirt often simply drip off, similarly to the lotus effect. And yet, if it must be washed, the items can go into the washing machine. Interestingly enough: only by wearing and washing does cashmere develop its typical fluffy and cuddly features.
So go ahead and slip on your cuddly sweater, that cute shawl and lie down on the sofa with its super-soft cushions, besides baby’s small bedchamber.
Papa Lobster is known for quality children’s clothing. The designers Johanna and Antonia are best friends and have known each other since childhood. And although they live far apart geographically, the one in Dusseldorf and the other in Paris, they succeed yet again to delight us with new collections, made entirely of cashmere. For the two founders, who are both mothers of two children, the quality of materials is just as important as guaranteeing a transparent, fair production under humane working conditions. The products are produced on traditional hand knitting machines in Nepal. With every sale of a product PAPA LOBSTER donates for school construction projects around Kathmandu.
The creative head behind Gretas Schwester is the graphic designer Sarah Neuendorf. Established in 2014, she designs illustrated and handmade products from paper, cloth and enamel. Gretas Schwester works mainly with sustainable materials such as recycled paper and organic cotton.
