Making Stories Magazine Issue 5

$28.00

1 in stock

Issue 5 explores the hidden qualities of plants and nature to shed a light on the essential role they have for us and the planet.

The 12 knitwear designs we’re so proud to feature in this issue celebrate nature in all its glorious ways through texture, shape and form – as do our artists and writers who dive deep into the connection between nature and making in their works.

With Making Stories Magazine, we strive to feature companies and makers who focus on sustainability, transparency, fairness and equity in their work. We love telling their stories and hope to inspire and enable crafters to make conscious and informed decisions about the materials they use and the companies they support.

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT MAKING STORIES MAGAZINE?

 

We’re (to our knowledge) the only ad-free knitting magazine on the market today. We believe in preserving our independence when it comes to deciding who we feature and work with through not accepting any ads for this magazine. 

 

We’re printing on 100% recycled paper, one of the few that’s certified not only with the EU Ecolabel and the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, but also with the Blauer Engel certificate. 

 

We’re keeping production and fulfilment as local as possible, working with Druckhaus Berlin-Mitte as our printer, the first printer to be certified with Blauer Engel, and with Urbanmail as our fulfilment and shipping partner, both here in Berlin. 

 

Who’s behind Making Stories Magazine?

 

Making Stories GmbH is an independent knitwear design publisher based in Berlin. 

We believe in choosing to use resources and capacities, be they human, environmental, social or financial, in a way that can be sustained in the long run. We believe in being aware of and actively reflecting on all parts of our (work) process and communicating them openly and honestly. We believe in treating all living beings involved in our work fairly, respectfully and lovingly and in caring about and for their physical and mental well-being. We believe in not discriminating against anyone based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, health, physical appearance, economic situation, education or any other factor, being mindful of what that means for their lives and their stories and working towards a world where everyone is free to create the life they wish to live.
