Authentic Fair Isle knitwear tradition with a unique identity is the essence of Mati Ventrillon exclusive pieces.
Every Fair Isle garment is more than just technique and knitting; the complex origins and influence of the traditional patterns, combined with island croft life, make them unique.
Each piece of Mati Ventrillon knitwear reflects this heritage. Mati uses only traditional patterns from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Each garment is individually designed; knitted to shape to give the best fit using organic and non- organic 100% Shetland wool; carefully hand-finished; separately washed and traditionally dried on a ‘Woollie Horse’.Begin
Inspired by Fair Isle knitwear’s long evolution and the vision of George Waterston, I work to perpetuate a heritage and craft tradition borne of hardship and extreme beauty.
Driven by visions of prosperity for Fair Islanders and determination to promote our knitwear, M.V. Collection offers a limited edition of high quality Fair Isle garments manufactured in Shetland.
