Belgian Corner: Howlin’


Another Saturday calls for another introduction to a Belgian brand! This week Howlin’!

I accidently came across Howlin’ when I bought a sweater in a second hand designer store in Antwerp. My heart fluttered immediately when saw the fabric and the colorblocking. Needless to say, I bought the weater but little did I know that Howlin’ is a Belgian brand!

Howlin – scottish slang for smelly – is an Antwerp knitwear brand with strong roots in Scotland and Ireland. Since 1981 they have been producing quality knitwear and in 2009 they launched a new label Howlin’.

The way of manufacturing remains traditional but Howlin’ offers more room for fantasy in shape and pattern.

Howlin’ strives for timeless, playful products that are made with care. So whether it is a scarf or a shaggy waistcoat; all their products are individually manufactured and hand finished by traditionally skilled craftsmen in either Scotland and Ireland using the highest quality yarns possible.
