Batoner Sweaters: The Last Word in Japanese Knitwear

Sumptuous knitwear is to be enjoyed season after season. With that in mind, we appreciate this sweater line’s dedication to classic silhouettes, with an emphasis on oversized, apres-ski-inspired forms this season.

In contrast to the more psychedelic luxurious cashmere pieces from The Elder Statesman, Batoner sweaters combine Japanese minimalism with Eastern European knitwear traditions to create pieces that are both nostalgic and contemporary.

Whether crafting their Signature Shawl Collar Cardigan in a rich chocolate brown or a Nordic Crew Neck Cardigan in navy, this line’s pieces will be treasured on colder days.

Batoner Cardigans & Sweaters Are Cult-Favorite Among Knitwear Enthusiasts

Understated never looked so sophisticated. All Batoner sweaters are crafted in the line’s native Japan. The brand is known for innovatively combining traditional Japanese techniques with modern technology. They also choose local materials as a way to create pieces that are both unique and timeless.

Prizing material above all else, Batoner sweaters are designed to last you for years to come — and become easy wardrobe staples on cool winter days.

Why We Love Batoner Sweaters

There is something ephemerally sophisticated about one of this line’s oversized pieces. We appreciate the organic hues found in their pieces, the line’s ability to combine Eastern and Western aesthetics, and their dedication to creating pieces that exist almost out of time.

About the Line

The line is based in Sagae city, located in the Yamagata prefecture, where natural parks and picturesque mountain ranges characterize the scenery. Sagae City is also considered the heart of the Japanese knitwear industry — a tradition that Batoner sweaters convey through their classic knitwear techniques and organic materials.
