The Story

I'm a hopeless knitter! I can only go straight, can't read pattern instructions and it takes me an average of 2 years to make a scarf. But I like knitwear, the texture, the rhythm... I wanted to replicate the visual impact of chunky knitting in a material I can work with. - Petra Green

After working over a decade first as fashion and later lingerie designer, I became weary of the transient, seasonal nature of fashion. With the lifestyle shift that happens when you become a parent, my focus turned to my home-life and as a designer, to home-decor.

With interior products, furniture and lighting, successful design is measured by its longevity and quality, and so in late 2010 and 3 months after the birth of my second child, I launched Room39 - interior furnishings and accessories brand.

Knit Knit is one of the first prints I created and it encompasses everything that the brand stands for - it's colourful, fresh and fun!

The original Knit Knit kids bedding range included 5 colours and has been featured in many national and international blogs and publications.

The print is a really simple idea — it's graphic representation of knitting… the effect is stunning … I think this is the kind of print that's going to last children for al long time as it's not going to age. Frankly. I want it for my bed! -The Bambino Goodies blog

Knot-like stitches and purls create a stunning geometric print similar to Origami folds. - Ellie Tennant for The National

My favourite print is certainly the ‘knit knit’ design, which I hope to buy as a double duvet set when it becomes available later this year. - Jessica Hogarth

Why I Need Your Help

Ever since the launch of Knit Knit kids bed linen I have been flooded by requests to make it available in larger sizes. Most of my products are produced locally (sometimes by me) and in small manageable batches, however the bedlinen requires high-volume manufacturing in order to achieve the best quality and price. 

The funds I hope to rase with your help through Kickstarter will go towards the production of the first batch of bed linen sets in the two colours selected by Room39 customers - INK and new NATURAL. Should the target be exceded by £2000 that would translate to a further color ( BANANA ) being introduced to the range.

Though You may not be in the market for new bedding, perhaps one of your friends might? Please help spread the word by re-posting the link to this site to your friends and contacts.
