Amirisu Magazine & Books

Amirisu is a beautifully illustrated knitting magazine first published in August 2012; it's available in Japanese and English and is published biannually. Amirisu aims for practical knitting designs that can inspire the younger generation with references to modernity and drawing on the extensive history of Japanese art and culture. The magazine includes works by leading overseas designers and supporting homegrown Japanese designers. It is sold in about 120 stores in 22 countries worldwide and is hugely popular and loved. It's one of our favourites to enjoy with a hot cup of coffee, taking my time to appreciate the gorgeous pictures and well-written articles.  

Starting in Spring 2024, Amirisu will be splitting the current format into two parts: there will be one to two pattern books per year featuring contributions from designers around the world, along with an online magazine containing editorial content that will be freely accessible! Issue 27 will be the last in its current format.

We also sell several Amirisu publications, including the Daruma Collection.
