I am so pleased with these booties. Mia was very accommodating in the colour change. She has done an incredible job - the stitching is uniform and the finish is spectacular. I can't wait to see these on a very special baby's feet. Thank you so much.
Unique items handmade for that precious person in your life
I am originally from South Africa, born and raised in a little town called Paarl, just outside Capetown. In South Africa, school children are taught handcrafts such as knitting, sewing and crochet. I have been living, working and raising my family in the UK now for over sixteen years and has always kept my hand in when it came to knitting. But it wasn’t until more recently, whilst on maternity leave, that I started to produce lovely knitted items for my daughter and for my friends' little ones, as new baby gifts or for baby showers.
It was these friends who, delighted with their gifts, encouraged me to turn her talent into a business, producing the kind of quality not on the high street - and in January 2011, Knitaboo was launched.
I strongly believes we should support local communities and buy handmade and local, wanting to protect the environment and prevent the child slavery that can sometime lie at the bottom of cheap mass production from certain countries. Buying British means you know where it came from and buying handmade ensures high quality.
Items in the Knitaboo collection are only available in limited quantity, using the best wool that I can source. My aim is to create unique, durable and easy care baby accessories that Mums will love. Inspired by my love for colour whether it is bright pinks and blues or the softer pastel kinds, even some neutral ones, I like keeping things different to whatever suits my mood!
