About

hi! my name is elise and i am the owner, designer, and maker behind elisemade. you could say i have yarn in my blood. knowing me means inevitably falling into conversations about knitting. i’m sorry, i promise i do occasionally think about other things :) i currently live in los angeles with my husband and our dog larry.

i’ve always been happiest when i’m being creative, whether as a young girl with a huge bucket of crayons or drawing and painting through middle and high school; i just always knew i wanted to be an artist. i graduated from the university of washington school of art with a focus on textiles and surface design, and since then i feel like i’ve come back to my roots. i come from a long line of incredibly talented artists and makers, most influentially, my aunt and my mom, both incredible seamstresses and knitters. coming from this tradition, i place a high value…

handmade means you are purchasing something completely unique in the marketplace. it holds special meaning because it wasn’t mass-produced in a factory by machines, but touched by real hands with care and attention to all the small details. i am an operation of one! everything in my shop was designed and handmade by me. i do all my own product photos, shipping and other shop maintenance in addition to a regular full-time job. elisemade is my true passion and i hope someday to be a maker full time.


through elisemade i strive to create original, modern knits for everyone. and maybe challenge the way you think about knitting, just a little bit.


i love custom orders -- if you can dream it, i’m pretty sure i can knit it!
