Žemiau (pronounced “zhey-meow”) means below in Lithuanian and, if you were to fly across Lithuania like a bird, you'd look down and see her. Not literally, but her alpaca wool color blocks could easily be the wheat fields, white sand dunes and sun bleached fields of their home country.
Designed in collaboration with Lithuanian designer Eglė Žiemytė, she's made from socially farmed Peruvian wool with no chemical dyes in sight. Naturally hypoallergenic and free of microplastics, her super long sleeves are designed for cold days. The ultimate cosy women's jumper.
