The Art of Knitting
Craftsmanship and experimentation define the culture of Sigi. We focus on creating new depths of colour and texture through the mixing of different yarns to present new and innovative designs that are instantly recognisable.
We have a deep respect and care for the knitwear we produce as well as the way in which we produce it. This is why we ensure that all of our knitwear is made in Belgium by real craftsmen and women under the best possible working conditions. These elements help define the culture we want to nurture with the Sigi brand.
Ilia Sigi Eckardt grew up in Antwerp in a very creative family where knitting was essential to the household. For more than forty years his mother Hilde Frunt and him worked for a variety of Belgian fashion designers experimenting with knitwear.
Being considered true experts in their field they have collaborated with some of Belgium's best and brightest designers. Because of his extraordinary background creations for Raf Simons, Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester, A.F. Vandevorst and many others were always present in the world Sigi grew up in.
