Making Stories Magazine - issue 2
Uma nova revista de tricot, concebida e produzida na Alemanha, sem publicidade, focada na sustentabilidade e nas parcerias com pequenas marcas. O segundo número inclui dois modelos desenhados especificamente para os nossos fios: as meias Thaba (Mondim) e o casaco com capuz Zingiber (Brusca).
With Making Stories Magazine, we strive to feature companies and makers who focus on sustainability, transparency, fairness and equity in their work. We love telling their stories and hope to inspire and enable crafters to make conscious and informed decisions about the materials they use and the companies they support.
In Issue 2, you’ll find cosy accessories and comfortable garments that are inspired by loving and caring for ourselves, our community and our planet. We’re delighted to share the extraordinary stories and visual art pieces of our contributors with you, from discovering the love for your body to finding the common threads in your communities and having necessary conversations on inclusion and racism.
WHAT’S SPECIAL ABOUT MAKING STORIES MAGAZINE?
We’re (to our knowledge) the only ad-free knitting magazine on the market today. We believe in preserving our independence when it comes to deciding who we feature and work with through not accepting any ads for this magazine.
We’re printing on 100% recycled paper, one of the few that’s certified not only with the EU Ecolabel and the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, but also with the Blauer Engel certificate.
We’re keeping production and fulfilment as local as possible, working with Druckhaus Berlin-Mitte as our printer, the first printer to be certified with Blauer Engel, and with Urbanmail as our fulfilment and shipping partner, both here in Berlin.
