My name is Tiphaine Vincent and I am Atelier La Vague.
I was born in the French countryside, between the freshwater of the Loire river and the seawater of the ocean. As a little girl, I learnt how to sew, weave and knit. But I didn’t know what to do exactly so I ended up studying foreign languages. And that’s what brought me to Italy, to Bergamo exactly, and here I felt inspired.
Atelier La Vague arose from this journey, going up the river. A workshop where I have decided to hand-knit as the women of my family taught me. This savoir-faire is very important to me, working with my hands with care and precision.
The idea is simple, knits for babies from 0 to 6 months old, essential and unisex items suitable from the very first instants. The neutral colour and the great quality make them perfect for newborn babies.
I work only with 100% pure merino wool from free-range animals. I have chosen this material for its softness and delicacy and it is suitable for babies’ and newborn babies’ sensitive skin. The stitch is stretchy so it is handy for everyday life. The wool is machine washable, produced in the European Union and Oeko-Tex® certificated.
