About us

Mila // designer, mother
Mila learned to knit at a very young age. Growing up on a farm in Bosnia and Hercegovina, she and her sisters knit socks and ​slippers for their ​family of eight. After immigrating to Canada in the late 1960s, Mila continued to knit for herself and her family, only by then, she knit fashionable sweaters as a stay-at-home mom of five children. She loved colour and patterns and her advanced skill made it possible for her to knit almost anything she imagined​, even her most complex designs. Mila passed away in 2008, leaving behind dozens of knitted treasures. Those close to her remember her as a ​happy, loving woman who was always knitting.
Sandra // founder, daughter
Sandra grew up in a family of entrepreneurs. Although she never considered an entrepreneurial path for herself, that changed when she inherited her mother'​s beautiful hand-knit sweaters. To honour her mom and share her amazing designs with friends, Sandra set out to create a knitwear line inspired by Mila's colou​rful knits. ​Armed with degrees in Commerce and Economics, ​fashion buying and styling experience and sheer will​, Sandra put together a thoughtful FW16 capsule collection to introduce MILA ZOVKO to the world. ​S​he is proud to offer a modern interpretation of her mother​'s beautiful sweaters and hopes you find them beautiful too​​.​
