Qi New York is a contemporary knitwear company that creates high-quality and modern knitwear at an affordable price. Our in-house design team worked to transform traditional knitwear by traveling worldwide to find the most luxurious and coveted cashmere available. Since 2002, Qi has grown substantially-but has never wavered in its commitment to bringing style and comfort to our customers. Qi stands for innovation-when purchasing a Qi product, you know that you will be selecting products that withstand the test of time in both quality and design. Cashmere is one of the most expensive fibers in the world-but we reject its traditional use, and instead produce novel, sophisticated pieces that are luxurious and on-trend.
