SHOP NOW Hand Knit in Canada 100% Pure Wool Established 1979

Cowichan-Inspired Sweaters

From simple beginnings of a group of grandmothers hand-knitting wool sweaters in Vancouver to a global company making its mark in high-fashion cities like Tokyo, New York, and London, the essence of Kanata Handknits over 41 years remains the same – we are a homegrown family business whose sweaters are still hand-made in Canada.

Founded by our late father and now into our second generation, Kanata designs draw inspiration from the distinct pattern and thick wool style that originated with the Cowichan, a Coast Salish people from Vancouver Island. Our sweaters are made from 100% wool and come in a variety of colours, patterns, and custom designs suitable for any personal style.

Whether we are shipping to individuals who order online or to notable fashion houses in Berlin and Rome, we pride ourselves on our personal touch with every sweater stitched by hand in our community since 1979. Our commitment to authentic, quality handiwork has made Kanata a global leader in the hand-knit industry.
