Making Stories GmbH is an independent knitwear design publisher based in Berlin, owned and run by Verena Cohrs and Hanna Lisa Haferkamp alongside their small but growing team.
"We believe in choosing to use resources and capacities, be they human, environmental, social or financial, in a way that can be sustained in the long run. We believe in being aware of and actively reflecting on all parts of our (work) process and communicating them openly and honestly. We believe in treating all living beings involved in our work fairly, respectfully and lovingly and in caring about and for their physical and mental well-being. We believe in not discriminating against anyone based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, health, physical appearance, economic situation, education or any other factor, being mindful of what that means for their life and their stories and working towards a world where everyone is free to create the life they wish to live."
Issue 5 :
Issue 5 explores the hidden qualities of plants and nature to shed a light on the essential role they have for us and the planet.
The 12 knitwear designs we’re so proud to feature in this issue celebrate nature in all its glorious ways through texture, shape and form – as do our artists and writers who dive deep into the connection between nature and making in their works.
