About Katwise Sweaters:

I started making recycled patchwork hoodies 20 years ago, while I was a wee gypsy girl, following the Grateful Dead. Since then my style has evolved and grown into this etsy maddness. I have made thousands and thousands of sweaters, and each one is unique. If you look at my sold listings you can see how they continue to morph and grow with each passing month.

My signature elf coat seems to have inspired quite a trend here on etsy, but Katwise is where it all started. These sweaters are an extension of my charmed and colorful gypsy life.

It has taken me years to perfect my craft, and I take a lot of pride in the quality of my sweaters These confections are built to keep you bright and warm through years of rambling. You can see from my feedback that I have thousands of delighted customers. Your happiness is my first priority!

That said, I frequently commit Crimes Against Perfection, because "perfect" is so blah. My work highlights the uniqueness and personality of each sweater (and each person who wears them!) I think Wonky is Beautiful, and hopefully you do too.

About Me:

My name is Kat, and this a one girl operation.Everything you see here is lovingly made by my hands only.

I am a wild-yet-calm hitchhiker girl who has spent years curiously wandering to remote corners of the globe. As part of the festival underground, I have always found new ways to thrive on my art and costumes. I strive to infuse everything I do with a sense of celebration. It is my hope that you put on my sweaters and feel that authenticity coming through.

I just bought a crazy old farm near Woodstock, NY which I am in the process of painting a million zillion colors (you can see pics on Facebook). I often refer to it as “The House That Sweaters Built” because it is you guys on etsy that made it possible. (thank you!!!!)

If you are looking to waste a little time, my labyrinthine website has lots of silly stories and arty distractions. You can see some of my crazy art cars, over the top costumes, and read about the time I hitchhiked to Timbuktu:


If you want to see these creations in action, please take a look at this (sorta dorky) youtube video of my twirling coats:

Please note:
*I do not do custom orders*
*I do not have a waiting list*
*Everything is “first come first serve” on the night I post new sweaters*

My coats tend to sell out in minutes, so the savvy shopper previews them on Facebook first. All relevant size/price/info will be included with each photo.

Most of all I want to say THANK YOU for the overwhelming love I have gotten on etsy. It is so incredibly life affirming for me to be able to follow my heart and have my creations received with such enthusiasm. I feel really humbled and grateful. Thank you thank you! A million thank yous!! I will sew my heart out for you guys!!
