Kalinka is a brand for simple but classic hand knitted garments for babies from newborn to 2 years. The knitwear is handcrafted in Bulgaria using 100% Merino wool from Peru. The special yarn is known for its comfort and softness next to the skin.Each Kalinka piece is hand-knit with a lot of love and passion by experienced Bulgarian grand-mothers. Kalinka’s grannies carry on centuries-old knitting tradition passed down through generations.
The concept of Kalinka is to make handknits that are simple and romantic with a luxurious feeling and an inspiration of the past. Designed by a mom of three kids, the knits are distinctive but practical for everyday use and the comfort of your baby in mind.
It all began like a classic story: while being pregnant with her twins Larry and Bobo, Nora Docheva-the creator, started to knit a simple baby sweater when she discovered the magic of a hand knitted baby clothing. From that moment she couldn’t stop knitting. Nora found herself digging into old closets for inspiration and talking to experienced grandmothers for some advice. The palette of colors became as important as the patterns themselves.
In just a few months Nora was ready with her first collection.
