Launched in 2015, ELEVEN SIX is a modern knitwear brand designed in upstate New York and sustainably made in Peru by local artisans using local materials. “The epiphany to start ELEVEN SIX came in April 2014 – pregnant with my first child during a trip to the sacred valley Andes Mountains in Peru,” shares Co-founder Catherine Carnevale. “ELEVEN SIX aims to offer an effortless, yet elevated approach to knitwear. As a mother, wife, and entrepreneur, I design for the modern woman in need of a versatile, timeless wardrobe to suit a lifestyle of work, travel, and play.”


Carnevale, who launched the brand with her husband Nick, the company’s CFO, tells me that knitwear is her passion and her training. “As a child growing up in England, I learned to knit from my mother and grandmother. Due to my love for this craft, I studied Fashion Textiles at the Central Saint Martins and then Knitwear at the University of Brighton—5 years in technical knitwear training.” Since relocating to New York she has designed for Calvin Klein, Anne Klein, and Club Monaco. After gaining experience and honing in on my professional skills it became a natural progression to form a knitwear brand of my own.”
