Just absolutely wonderful. This shop was so much fun to work with and the quality is incredible. Reminds me of why I buy handmade. I love being able to tell my daughter the name of the person who made her gifts and a little bit about them. Thank you!

About

Louisa Vintage...celebrating the long line of Louisa's on my Mom's side of the family.

Louisa Vintage has been a dream of mine for years. It just made sense, my love of the "Louisa's", (at least 7 generations, the first, or, only daughter in each family), family history and all things vintage. And, my love of knitting, among other artistic endeavors. My Grandma Louisa taught me how to knit and crochet when I was a little girl. Through the years, I have been lucky to acquire vintage buttons, tatting tools, old handmade lace, fabric, threads, knitting needles and crochet hooks,
vintage clothing, pillowcases, quilts, and patterns, belonging to the Louisa's. I love to incorporate
vintage buttons and lace into my creations. I use the knitting needles that are generations old, and love that my ancestors used them in their own handy work. I approach each project as a work of art. Often, it evolves as I knit, in it's design and choice of colours and materials. This is why most are one-of-a-kind.
I love what I do and hope this is reflected in the quality and uniqueness of my work.

Welcome to my Etsy shop! My creations begin with a vision and most are knit without a pattern. I pride myself in creating vintage-inspired, one-of-a-kind knits with special attention to detail. My favourite material of choice is top quality wool. Wool is expensive and requires special care but there is nothing like it for it's versatility and endurance. Wool is protein-based from natural animal fibers and insulates naturally to regulate temperature and wick away moisture, keeping you warm and dry. Wool is a natural choice for baby. Unlike acrylic and other man-made fibers, wool is safer for baby, being naturally fire resistant. It possesses anti-bacterial properties and its natural quality gives amazing depth to colour and texture.

Additional policies and FAQs
Every effort has been made to firmly attach embellishments (buttons, flowers etc...) to items to ensure safety. It is strongly recommended that young children be supervised in order to prevent possibility of strangulation or choking.

I will consider requests for customer custom orders on an individual basis. My shop prides itself on unique, one-of-a-kind items so I do not mass produce. Some item I will reproduce but not all. Most items I knit are of my own design without a pattern. Many of the materials I use (vintage buttons, lace, remnants from vintage jewelry) are limited supply. Feel free to request a custom order and I will let you know whether or not I am able to do it. For custom orders, after the details have been agreed upon, I require payment before I will proceed in making the item and custom work is non-returnable.
