Amano was created by fashion artist, Lorena Laing. The Melbourne design firm is now an international brand, featuring functional, luxe alpaca knitwear, fashion accessories and homewares.
Amano works with skilled local artisans to hand knit and weave pieces with a nod to traditional techniques meshed with natural, delicate materials to ensure no two garments are the same.
Renowned for its dedication to ‘slow fashion’, Amano takes a step back with its craft and focuses on sustainable, ethical and traditional artisan processes to bring its clients a truly unique modern piece. The difference in detail stems from subtleties, enduring colour palettes and depths, rich textures and finishes – the mark of raw, natural sustainable fibres and the work of local artisan hands.
Proudly, in its 12th consecutive season, Amano is proof of a highly sustainable and ethical business with zero waste and continues to win the battle against fast fashion. Embracing the ‘slow fashion’ movement, Amano maintains sustainable practices and challenges consumers to question the traceability of their clothing as well as the origins of the materials themselves.
