Chunky Crocheted Cowl

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!”

One of Louis Vuitton’s (@LouisVuitton) Highly Sought-After Bags Is Now an iPhone Case!

Now if you thought that your iPhone case couldn’t get anymore luxurious, when you thought wrong. Luxury houses like Chanel, Dolce & Gabanna and Gucci may produce extremely expensive clothing, but the vast majority of their income believe it or not comes from accessories. Louis Vuitton’s bags, scarves, belts, fragrances, sunglasses aren’t cheap, but they’re affordable to most people who want just that little taste of luxury to flaunt around for themselves. I mean we can all identify with wanting just a little taste of fabulousness, cant we?

Well just as of recently at their SS17 show in Paris, Louis Vuitton pulled a power move by revealing a new line of iPhone cases (for the 6, 6 plus, and hopefully the 7 and 7
plus) that mimic the house’s iconic trunks, complete with reinforced corners, studs and monogram prints. The cases come in all sorts of colors and sizes, and there are even shiny metallic gold and red crocodile options, as if holding a tiny LV trunk in your hand wasn’t flashy enough already.
