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

Our Homegrown Story

From simple beginnings of a group of grandmothers handknitting 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 over 41 years remains the same – we are a homegrown family business whose wool sweaters are still hand made in Canada.

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 handknitted sweaters are made from 100% pure wool and come in a variety of colors, patterns, and custom designs suitable for any personal style. You can buy our cowichan-inspired sweaters with just a click from anywhere in the world.

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 wool sweater handknit in our Canadian community since 1979. Our commitment to authentic, quality Cowichan-inspired hand knit wool sweaters has made Kanata a global leader in the handknit industry.
