"Inspiration from the Japanese knitting and craft scene.
amirisu is a print and online magazine that launched in August 2012. The founders, Tokuko and Meri, met through Ravelry in 2011 and decided to start a magazine together after a few lunches and cups of coffee. They were both frustrated by a lack of modern and elegant knitwear patterns that can actually be worn to work and thought that knitters in other countries, not just in Japan, had the same frustration. Thus the bilingual knitting magazine, amirisu, was born."
