Ellie Mahala Gifford's Profile
My name is Ellie and I have a great passion for well-made, one-of-a-kind knitwear! I am 23 years old, and live in Sydney, and I'm just starting out my own knitwear business 'mahalaknits'. My designs will eventually include a wide range of gloves, beanies, cute hats, scarves, accessories, blankets, cushions and quirky toys, and I hope to be selling through my own website (www.mahalaknits.com) in the future. At the moment I am trialing one of my gauntlet designs on Etsy (handmade in beautiful Japanese Noro wool and available in 3 different colourways). It is my ambition to use only the best quality wools, based on colour, texture, composition and durability. Thankyou so much for your support, and please stay tuned for future updates and the launching of my website!
Designers who inspire me: Sophie Digard, Colette Bream, Donna Wilson, Stupid Creatures, Tamar Mogendorff, Kaffe...
