The Louisa Nautical Stripe£195

Sold out

Rebecca Udall Design

Gift Wrap (£6)

Laura says

This reinterpretation of the classic fisherman's jumper is the perfect everyday light knit. Wear it with everything from denim skirts to leather trousers, chinos to utility skirts. In the summer, it's the perfect partner to jean shorts and sandals.


Inspired by the traditional Norfolk fishermen’s Gansey jumpers of the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Louisa is a nautical stripe, short sleeve cotton knit.


It features a cropped length with a subtle, boxy silhouette for a relaxed fit. The hem sits on the waistline and can be tucked in without creating bulk, or left loose. Ribbing along the cuffs allows the 3/4 sleeves to be pushed up to create a voluminous puff. Each classic navy stripe is beautifully aligned to give a contemporary feel. The high crew-neck is fastened with poppers at the back. 


The Louisa is made from 100% Italian spun cotton and knitted in Italy by a wonderful, family run business of largely female craftspeople.
