When the weather outside is frightful–and by frightful we mean cold as “Reverse-Hell”–having a reliable and cute scarf and hat are EVERYTHING. We love our summer, spring, and fall fashions traditionally due to the versatility in styles and options; but it is a little hardier to be trendy in winter–or so we thought! Enter StitchDFactory by India Yahsmein, a line of wonderfully made, quality, and trendy knitted accessories to combat all your frosty fears!
After receiving two amazing products from StitchDFactory, the Chunky Crocheted Cowl and the Slouchy Knit Beanie Hat, we were all too happy to get the scoop on this wonderful designer and her project of love! Check out our Q & A w/ India below!
1. How did you start your company?
“It actually started in London when I was studying abroad. When a group of ladies I met over seas decided to learn to knit from another student also studying abroad. I bought my first pair of needles and yarn and proceeded to make a scarf. Nevertheless I didn’t buy enough yarn so the scarf was extremely short and a little uneven but I loved it and it’s still in my closet till this day. So after a while I began making pieces for friends and family as gifts and was instantly encouraged to sell my pieces. Everyone was so impressed with the quality of my work and so the Etsy adventure began! And within the last year I decided to make my passion my reality and here we are today! “
2. Tell us about your products. Are they hypoallergenic, where do you get your fabrics from?
“Currently I am focused on winter accessories because of the season. I carry hats and beanies, scarves and cowls, ear warmers and even Shrugs during the fall and winter season. During this upcoming spring and summer I will focus on beach wear… swimwear, cover ups, skirts, cover ups and totes. Our winter apparel is mostly made of wools and wool blends. However our summer pieces are mainly 100%cotton.”
3. What makes your brand different from other lines of knitted clothing out there?
“The quality and attention to detail is what makes me stand out from other brands. As well as every single piece is handmade by me!”
