Laine Magazine :: Issue No. 15
Laine is taking a step into a more modern, dynamic direction by celebrating knitwear and the world of fibre in a fresh way. Together with the new look, they are also introducing new, regular articles, such as Jeanette Sloan Talks Fibre, alongside gorgeous knitwear patterns with beautiful high-quality photography. The new look was created by Kyiv-born Marina Veziko, one of Finland’s leading designers and the Graphic Designer of the Year 2021.
