US-based Myrrhia Resneck uses organic merino wool from Australia, US-ranched wool, California-grown foxfibre cotton, and sustainable Tencel from Lenzing to create eco-knitwear for her label Myrrhia.

This season, Myrrhia gets inspired by Dilma Rouseff, the President of Brazil who embodies the designer’s aesthetics: polished, put-together and authoritative with colourful fabrics and textures reflecting a creative rebelliousness.

“Ours is a brand that strives to serve a need. People need well-made, comfortable clothing that makes them look and feel wonderful. We don’t make hand-knitted, embroidered, beaded pieces for royalty. Nor do we make ‘basics’ or apparel commodities. Our collection is something you can wear everyday and is ‘unique.’ We use eco-fiber, (and these are luxury fibers in a day and age when many clothing seems to be made of petrochemicals like acrylic and nylon) and make clothes in an efficient manner, which respects the value of labour,” states the designer.

She’s a fan of her own work, and says: “I love wearing knits all year round. So, I focus on sweater knits. This means I don’t have to worry about making the cut and sew or woven garments which the knitwear is to be styled with. I can make some lacey layers and dresses in cotton and other plant-based fibers for spring. It is really fun to design with some lighter textiles.”
