More About Making Stories
Making Stories is an independent knitwear design publisher founded by Verena Cohrs and Hanna Lisa Haferkamp and based in Berlin.
Our mission is to promote independent knitwear designers from around the world and environmentally friendly yarn sources. We are, and love to collaborate with, small and feminist businesses who are transparent in their operations. Honesty and kindness are the cornerstones of both our public voice and internal spirit.
We believe in choosing to use resources and capacities, be they human, environmental, social, or financial, in a way that can be sustained in the long run. We believe in being aware of and actively reflecting on all parts of our (work) process and communicating them openly and honestly. We believe in treating all living beings involved in our work fairly, respectfully, and lovingly, and in caring about and for their physical and mental well-being. We believe in not discriminating against anyone based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, health, physical appearance, economic situation, education, or any other factor, being mindful of what that means for their life and their stories and working towards a world where everyone is free to create the life they wish to live.
