IWTO share LINE in collaboration with H ProjectFounded in 2013, H Project is a special platform, with dedicated shop spaces in Holt Renfrew stores and online, that selects unique products from around the world with compelling narratives, which support local cultures and communities, and that have a minimal impact on the environment or positively impact the world by donating to charities.

Natalia Chryssoulis, H Project’s Buyer on the Brand and Creative Strategy team at Holt Renfrew, has launched several designer charity collaborations through the platform. One of these is the collaboration with LINE. International Wool Textile Organisation (IWTO) takes a closer look at this collaboration.

LINE and H Project

LINE is a knitwear collection established in 2000. Its mission is to provide affordable, everyday knitwear through effortless shapes and fabrications. It pushes design possibilities with innovative draping and embellishment, making it one of the most sought after novelty clothing brands on the market today.

In 2019, LINE and H Project, together with Campaign For Wool Canada, started a collaboration aimed at presenting an exclusive capsule collection, with uniquely designed garments made with 100% traceable, RWS-certified yarns. Rashad Hurray, who manages national sales and creative strategy for the brand, has also branched into design, curating beautiful and impactful collections, including the latest capsule collection for H Project.

The Campaign For Wool Canada is dedicated to supporting and promoting a global wool industry that is environmentally responsible, sustainable and commercially viable.

H Project’s Capsule Collection

Some of the pieces included in the capsule collection were the Hundred Mile Jacket and the Patrick Hunter Blanket. The jacket was designed and produced from single-flock Canadian wool spun, dyed, woven, combed and sewn at various mill within 100 miles of Toronto. The blanket is a testament to its designer’s Ojibwe heritage, featuring eagles and eagle feathers beautifully woven into the design.

The Fall/ Winter 2023 collection also features a range of sweaters, jackets and other knitwear, with each design being a limited edition. $50 from the sale of each and every LINE/ H Project sweater is donated to the Campaign For Wool Canada.
