Creating harmony is my passion.

I come from a family of artists. Both my grandfather and father were photographer. They taught me the love for nature and to look at everyday things as if nobody has seen them before.
From my mother I inherited the love for colors, textiles and clothes. My grandmother showed me the way to make beauty with minimal means. Together with her I made my first creations for my Barbie: a raincoat of a cut open plastic bag, a wedding dress from a paper lace doily from the lunchroom.
These three ingredients are the breeding ground from which my designs are growing.
Like a photographer translates the world around him into pictures, a painter into paintings, a musician into music, I incorporate and organize the impressions that I gain everyday, into knitwear.
I studied fashion at the Artschool, Maastricht, Holland, where I worked with a knitting machine the first time. I immediately fell in love with it.
There is a world of possibilities. I feel I discovered only just a part of them. I enjoy my journey every day. Enjoy with me!

STUDIO MYR is the ethical, high-end knitwear label of fashion designer Miriam Lenarts. From an unstoppable passion for craft, design and knitwear, she designs unique collections for both men and women. Pure materials are being transformed in a pure, timeless style. Her products are being defined by refinement, elegance and playfulness. The silhouet is slender and graceful. With her contemporary designs, Miriam tries to give an new definition to the ancient craft of knitting. She wants to make pure products in a small scale in a traditional way, using only first class, natural yarns, that are being obtained with respect for men and nature. The properties of the qualities of those yarns determine to a large extent the shape and function of the product. Moreover, the craft of knitting itself an important source of inspiration.
Sustainability is an other major aspect of her work, both in production as in application. All collections are being produced in Holland, according to the "zero waste" principle. The designs are timeless and not subjected to fashion trends. STUDIO MYR produces no seasonal collections, but every collection is being maintained and extended every year. The high quality yarns as linen, bio-cotton and baby alpaca, ensure a longtime use.
This way the work of STUDIO MYR fits into the new zeitgeist in fashion, where explicit attention is drawn to a responsabel way of producing and using: "Buy less, choose well, make it last. Quality over quantity" (Vivienne Westwood). STUDIO MYR designs for the men and the women who want to define themselves in this way with unique design.

Miriam: "I always have been fascinated by creating beauty out of seemingly nothing. As a child I made for my Barbies wedding dresses out of paper doilies, and rain coats out of little plastic bags. I still have that alchemical feeling as I sit behind my knitting machine, and watch garments emerge from a single thread."
