A. Roege Hove is a conceptual knitwear brand that challenges traditions with a modern and artistic approach to original craftsmanship and an aim for silhouettes to be both effortless and extravagant.
The unique designs are created each season by founder Amalie Røge Hove. With a master’s in textile design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and years of experience as a knitwear designer for Danish brands such as Cecilie Bahnsen and Mark Tan, she created the brand in 2019 as a way of bringing her own visions of knitwear to life. And it has been evolving and developing ever since.
Defined by an experimenting and intuitive way of working with traditional knitwear techniques, the brand challenges our perception of shape and pushes our expectations of the materials and their behavior. Containing only accessories, the very first collection was a study in small-scale sculpturalism. Later these studies were expanded into a larger scale with the first collection of ready-to-wear.
A. Roege Hove was awarded winner of the Wessel & Vett Fashion Prize 2021.
Drawing on a rich culture of Danish design and craftsmanship, each piece is developed in our studio in Copenhagen and carefully produced by our cooperative knit factories located in Umbria, Italy and Kildare, Ireland, under fair working conditions.
All A. Roege Hove designs are knitted directly into shape, having therefore very little waste. We wish to take full advantage of the craft of knitting. It can be difficult not to have any waste in terms of leftover yarn, but each A. Roege Hove piece produced in Italy is created through a “no waste” production model. This model has a material waste close to zero by having a +/- 10% tolerance in terms of delivered quantities – a tolerance we are willing to risk to ensure less production waste. We only use multi-certified organic cotton from Emilcotoni and Iafil – certifications counting: BCI CERTIFICERET, STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TE, STeP by OEKO-TEX, OCS certified by ICEA, RWS certified by ICEA, GRS certified by ICEA, ISO 14001 certificate.
