    Take a look inside Making Stories Magazine Issue 5:


    Yes, we do print sustainably.

    We print on 100% recycled paper – and we are super proud to have found one that lets our photos and patterns shine!

    They're crisp and true to their original colors. The secret? Our awesome printer, Königsdruck Berlin (local to us, yay!)

    They work with an LED-offset printing machine that dries the ink right after it's applied to the paper. That way, it can't sink in and the colors stay as glowy and beautiful as possible.

    The best part though? The machine is completely climate-neutral.

    We're the ones who care.

    We started Making Stories because we deeply believe in the power of two things: sustainability and knitting.

    Stitching sustainability into every aspect of life (and business) can not only help us save this beautiful planet, but also lead a more fulfilling life.

    That being said, we believe sustainability looks different for everyone. Finding what exactly it means for you and making decisions that reflect that in your daily life is incredibly empowering.

    We're here to help you with that in your favorite pastime, knitting.

    Lovely magazine

    I found this magazine very refreshing in the world of knitting. From the words describing each pattern and the recommended yarns to the brilliant photography, drawings and poems. I am looking forward to getting as many of the lovely patterns onto my needles as soon possible (when I finish the 3 wips on the go at the moment). It is a big bonus that this magazine is produced in a sustainable way as we all need to be aware of taking care of our fragile world. Absolutely love it.
