K. Urman's Profile
In Estonia and in our family knitting and crocheting has always been very important activity. All the women in our family knit and crochet. I learned to knit and crochet before going to school and have enjoyed it ever since.
I use Estonian traditional techniques and styles to create something contemporary and new. I prefer natural materials and I also like dyeing my yarn with natural dyestuff (plants or mushrooms).
If I walk outside the ideas just flow into me. Sometimes it's a color, sometimes a texture, sometimes an emotion. I go home, grab my needles or hook and try to put it all in my work.
Everything in my shop is unique. I improvise my items and never copy something I've already done. You can be sure that if you buy something from me there is no-one else in the world...
