LaloCardigans is a Georgian brand of knitwear clothes. Each item is a unique handmade piece from Georgia, Caucasus. The brand was founded by twin sisters Lalo and Nina Dolidze in 2012. But the unusual story starts back in student years of Lalo Dolidze, creative director of LaloCardigans. While she studies subjects not related to fashion at the University, she has a secret dream of owning her own brand and keeps craving for the fashion world, but she can never really imagine herself as a fashion designer. She has an idea of special knitted pieces and starts to wear hand woven cardigans made by her.
After a while, her sister Nina encourages her and twin sisters decide that it is time to share their love for cardigans to the world... And they establish LaloCardigans, which was an instant success.
Lalo draws her inspiration from Nature’s most unique and beautiful features. Often used for the collections shapes and silhouettes of different flowers and plants.
In 2016 Lalo Dolidze launches a new line “LALO”. She uses an original mix of exquisite intarsia, finest special yarns and blends, hand-painted natural yarns from Caucasus crafted in endless combinations to create exclusive and unique textiles for Lalo collections.
"I want my story to be an inspiration for those who have their secret dreams, it Is never late to dare and try, I was 30 when I started fashion business and I had a completely different life before it." -Lalo Dolidze
