Knitting is a generational story. Techniques that have been passed down from mother to daughter for generations. Ancient secrets are hidden in each piece’s unique stitch structure. I’m going to fill you in on this piece’s secrets and the special design journey it takes to become the heirloom you’ll receive.
We start with our yarn - 100% Pure Cashmere. Inherently one of the softest qualities of yarn, with natural anti itching properties, we chose this yarn because of it’s quality, warmth, and our Cashmere vender’s commitment to sustainability.
This piece was made by a duo husband/wife run manufacturer in NY. We wanted to make a timeless shawl/wrap that any bride could order last minute to pair with her wedding dress while staying warm and elegent.
We started with a tension swatch - this effects how soft the final piece is. Once approved, we go into prototyping. We went through two protos to make sure the final shawl would be just perfect.
Our garments are family heirlooms and their packaging needs to keep them safe. Our packaging are custom made wooden boxes -- protective ecosystems that safeguard your shrug from gravity, moths, and the aging effects of time.
Skillfully made by local woodworker, Dustin Case. He makes the boxes in his Indiana studio using cedar wood certified by the Forrest Stewardship Council (FSC).
Inside each box are step by step instructions for how to care for you piece. We believe that sharing how to properly care for your clothing is a form of love. A special kind of inheritance that you can pass on to future generations.
Thank you for following along on your piece’s creative journey! My hope is that the warmth that we whisper in each hand-crafted stitch, keeps you feeling loved and beautiful the day of your wedding.
