Arne Nerjordet and Carlos Zachrison, Norwegian and Swedish respectively, established ARNE & CARLOS in 2002. Drawing on their traditional Scandinavian influences and their natural environment, they create original and visually striking knitwear.
Through experience gained from working alongside Scandinavia's most respected knitting practitioners, many of them elderly women using century-old techniques, Arne and Carlos seek to preserve these techniques as well as create pieces that are modern and new.
Arne and Carlos collaborated with Comme des Garcons in 2008 and Urban Outfitters in 2009. Currently, Arne and Carlos are developing patterns for the hand knit market and their second book, Julekuler was released in Norway in October 2010. The English version of the book was released in the USA in 2011.
Arne & Carlos’ creative base is located 190 kilometres north of Oslo in the Valdres region of Norway, in a disused railway station. This idyllic location is a source of inspiration as well as a haven for peace and tranquillity. There Arne & Carlos absorb the rich tradition of Scandinavian arts and crafts while adding their own personal inspirations.
