Rapha Transit Elite sweater: Made by hands

TRANSIT ELITE from Dave Christenson on Vimeo.

I suppose it's a good idea to have a jumper handy when you're halfway up a mountain. Better still to have a jumper factory, and a flock of sheep for the merino and cashmere. Or does cahmere come from a goat?

But just think of the knitting possibilities.

This is probably why Shea Parton of Apolis Activism and Cole Maness of Rapha turned Himalaya-wards for someone to produce their Transit Elite Sweater. No idea how they found this team of women - probably bumped into them on a bike ride.

But what a find. One look at this film and you'll be wanting to get on that bike and find a village of your own to knit your socks. Hopefully with a handy mountain next door to make use of your Rapha gear on, too.
