My name’s Gabriele and I am the founder and creator of the knitwear brand SALANIDA. The essence of SALANIDA is sustainability and simplicity. Our knits are effortless and created to be timeless - designed with a modern twist, promising to hug your body with toasty comfort that will bring you joy for many years to come.
At SALANIDA, we value the needs of the environment and the maker as much as the needs of the customer. We draw inspiration from our roots and living by the sea. Our knits are designed with respect for earth’s colours and textures, importance of natural materials and traditional craftsmanship.
We believe fashion can be something that feels comfortable on your skin and empowers your soul. I invite you to embrace yourself in our cozy knits and join the journey towards a more caring and mindful future.
ETHICAL EUROPEAN PRODUCTION
Our entire supply chain is located in Europe, at the traditional cradle of clothing making. The yarns are spun in Italy, and the garments are knitted in Lithuania, at the family owned factory just 100km away from our studio. By reviving traditional industries, providing jobs and retaining expertise, we make our communities stronger, safer and happier.
Close proximity of our production partners and possibility to work with on-demand and small batches allows us to be fast and flexible, react quickly to changing demand and avoid surplus in production. We can achieve all of that without compromising on the quality.
Impeccable quality and attention to detail is one of our cornerstones. Every technological decision affecting your wearing experience is carefully thought through by our professional in-house team.
Most of our styles have just one or two sizes as they are designed and engineered in such way to perfectly fit most people. Our knitted pants are stretchy and said to be most comfortable our customers ever had. They come in two sizes and length variations and also have an adjustable waistband ensuring the best sit on the waist. Yes, just like in children's clothes! Our clients agreed the fit was just perfect to adapt even during pregnancy.
Head to toe our knits are made for a smooth transition between home and office, morning to evening, city and nature. They are designed to be easily mixed-and-matched together and create a smart wardrobe with a variety of different outfits.
Merino, alpaca and mohair wools, natural linen, cotton and eco-viscose are our beloved fibers. Made from natural renewable resources, not only they do not create the environmental burden but they are also long lasting, functional and versatile. We run a continuous core collection that is supplemented by seasonal drops. We create new styles and produce only as much as it’s needed always keeping up to date with the actual demand.
It’s became common that our customers turn into our friends and models. It happens because of their special relationship with our products, and our special relationship with them. The best compliment for us is to see them coming back and spreading the word about our cozy knits.
We deeply care about their experience throughout the entire journey of shopping with us. We co-create styles together, and are always ready to update even the smallest details that need to be improved.
That human bond is essential at every step of our business.

You may wonder why it's Salanida?
There’s a place of inspiration, a tiny town of secrets and adventures called Nida. On the coast of Lithuania, it’s surrounded by white sand dunes, ancient woods and windswept amber beaches. It's a tranquil sanctuary away from the bustling world. Here, time seems to slow down - just enough to remind us to appreciate the little things in life. See and feel it yourself.
