Lenko is the brand designed by Dana Lenko in Melbourne, Australia. The collection started when she was a teenager, drawing animals and weird things on t-shirts. The range grew to include whole collections of clothing. One year, during Fashion Week, a style fell through at the last moment. Dana quickly sewed a Llama sweater. It was a hit and you guessed it, Animal Sweaters were born.
Entirely made in Melbourne, the Animal Sweaters have a cult following. Known for their quality and detail, these soft fleecy sweaters are adorned with animal appliques. Each piece of fabric appliqué is hand-cut and then lovingly embroidered. They’re wearable pieces of art! The animal are chosen each year by an online competition and made in very limited editions.
