The story of Mr Mittens is one for all ages. The Belgian-Australian premium knitwear brand, was born out of not one but two chance encounters. First, Antwerp-born Stéphanie Caulier, the founder and creative director, meets the man who is to become the love of her life and follows him halfway across the globe to Australia. Happily settled in Perth but restless for a new endeavour, Caulier stumbles upon a knitting café whilst visiting New York in 2007. This chance encounter brings backs childhood memories of her love for knitting, a cherished family pastime when growing up. Back home in Australia, the idea of an own knitwear label starts to take shape in her mind.
