In the bustling heart of New York City lies an independent sustainable brand: Rafaiel Knitwear. Rooted in humanism, their designs infuse naturalism and realism within their garments, celebrating the unique essence of humanity. With a profound belief in experiential knowledge, the brand’s mission lies in empowering individuals, irrespective of gender, by embracing the diversity of human identity. 
This season, their newest Fall/Winter 2023 collection marks a return to Rafaiel Knitwear’s roots and essence through the embrace of change and functionality. Core basics mingle with signature knits, giving rise to a wardrobe that narrates the life of a modern urban person. The brand’s founder, Darcey Lehman, integrates her varied heritage, stretching from her Czech roots to her upbringing in a small town in Michigan, reflecting her life in the garments and delivering our everyday essentials. Organically knit and ethically manufactured, the new ready-to-wear pieces are designed to effortlessly transition from everyday wear to a night out and serve as perfect companions for your existing wardrobe favourites, offering sustainability and versatility in one luxe knit package.
Rafaiel Knitwear takes pride in championing sustainability through conscious choices, and evidently so. Their new ready-to-wear line features organic cotton from Texas, cleaned and spun into yarn to be interlaced into delicate knit fabrics in North Carolina, before being fashioned into designs in NYC. Lush knits can only lush when made consciously, and the brand proves this through their preference for natural, easily recyclable fibres, from 100% merino wool to cruelty-free alpaca yarn. With limited quantities and biodegradable materials, Rafaiel Knitwear is sashaying alongside the eco-friendly fashion scene, urging us to indulge in guilt-free chic.
