maharishi x Kanata · Cowichan Knits

maharishi’s AW20 collection features two hand-knitted Cowichan sweaters, produced exclusively for maharishi by Kanata Knits.

The garments are hand-knitted in Canada from luxurious 100% Virgin Wool, with a heavy knit style that is an assimilation of indiginous Salish weaving techniques and traditional Fair Isle knitting practices.

The Anti-War Cowichan reinforces maharishi’s stance against war and violence, and is decorated with symbols of peace – a pacifist twist on artworks inspired by Afghan War Rugs.

The Camo Cowichan Cardigan features AW20’s camouflage ‘DPM: Mamushi’, which references the 1980’s ROK ‘Academy’ camouflage from South Korea.
