by Alexa Ludeman and Emily Wessel

The Pacific Coast of Canada is a very special place, beloved by those who live here. We live in cities, but these cities are situated in majestic landscapes. Mountains to one side, the ocean on the other, and verdant forests in between - look in any direction and you see beauty. Landscape and climate have created a unique west-coast lifestyle. We challenge you to try the Vancouver Trifecta: kayak, hike, and snowboard all in the same day... clad in exquisite knits, of course! While we are city dwellers, hints of our pioneering past remain. The coast has only recently been home to European settlers and modern conveniences. Here the great-granddaughters of frontierswomen wear wool (under their goretex) and are praised for their skills at chopping wood and starting fires. Amazing landscape, our love of playing in the outdoors, and a laid-back urban vibe inspired this collection of knits. Our surroundings are both rustic and urban, wild and pretty, and the designs reflect this - capturing the serene, the playful, and the rugged. Curl up next to your wood stove, grab some local hand-dyed yarn, and get to work creating something beautiful for yourself or your loved ones! All the designs are sized for the whole family, because we know your adorable little man wants to dress just like your sexy old man! From hipster to housewife, beginner to expert, we have crafted this collection for you! With all our love Emily & Alexa
