Howlin’ are an Antwerp based knitwear brand. Since 1981 they have been producing quality knitwear in Scotland and in 2009 they launched our new label Howlin’ (scottish slang for smelly). The way of manufacturing remains traditional but Howlin' offers more room for fantasy in shape and pattern.
At Howlin’ they strive 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 or Ireland using the highest quality yarns possible.
Small is beautiful.
Next to their Scottish and Irish knitwear Howlin’ are happy to create products in their home country Belgium. Together with several small factories in Belgium, each carefully chosen for their own speciality, they manage to make a diverse range of products which include lighter weight knitwear, jersey and towel fabric garments. The goal is to create durable, functional and original products which far outlive seasonal trends.
All pieces are produced in small batches and with close attention to details. Extra special is the fact that for their jersey Howlin’ don’t import fabrics but that they knit everything entirely in-house.
