Thijs Verhaar

Exceptional Scarves for Men

Thijs Verhaar is a true magician when it comes to knitwear. With more than 30 years of hands-on expertise in industrial knitting, the Dutch designer knows how to manipulate fibre, stitches, tension and colour to bring his designs to life. Thijs: “I am fixated on tactility and driven to make every garment feel soft and warm, like an embrace. As a perfectionist, I have an uncompromising attention to detail that keeps me awake at night. It’s terrible for my sleep, but does wonders for my knitwear.” Thijs takes care of the entire knitting process: from the sourcing of the fibres and the creative design to the tension and finishing of each garment. “Every element of knitting fascinates me; I take immense satisfaction from having an intimate relationship with each individual garment from fibre to finish.”
