Behind the Fringe & Bow
When I was roughly 8 years old, my grandmother, Jeanie, taught me to knit and before long she was teaching me to crochet. I spent many happy hours watching her knit her way through countless cardigans and around crochet edging on infinite handkerchiefs. Her passion and dedication to her craft spurred me on to make things for myself. From there, a lifelong addiction was born.
Throughout my life I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by makers who specialise in all sorts of handiwork. From knitting and crochet to sewing, needlework, tatting, painting and woodwork — every person who shared their knowledge with me has shaped the maker I am today. This shop is my way of honouring the investment they made in teaching me everything I know.
By day I am a graphic designer and it's been a long held dream of mine to have a brand of my own to foster. Fringe & Bow was developed to create a space for my love of knitwear and my passion for design to merge. I am a keen advocate for the use of handmade, analogue techniques in a digital age. The Fringe & Bow brand allows me to experiment with my own design style and find my place in the world, whilst creating handmade knitwear dedicated to the makers who taught me.
Maker & Designer — Brisbane, Australia
I am a graphic designer. Crochet has always been my weird thing and making things for people allows me to connect them with that side of me. Fringe & Bow allows me to combine all the things I love most about the design world with my handmade passion.

Handmade Origin & Care Instructions
All items sold by Fringe & Bow are handmade by me in Brisbane, Australia. While every effort is made to ensure consistency across product ranges, due to the nature of handmade items sometimes tiny imperfections may occur. These imperfections or slight variances in size are not considered faults, rather they add to the character and charm of the piece.
Please follow the detailed care instructions on each individual product listing, these will also be included with products when purchased.
Maintenance & Colour Representation
Due to the nature of knitwear based products, a fuzzy or fluffy pill may develop over time. This is a result of ordinary use and should not be considered a fault. To keep your knits looking fresh, occasionally trim away any noticeable pill carefully with a pair of scissors. A little extra care goes a long way and will keep you and your Fringe & Bow knitwear together for years to come.
All product images are minimally processed, to ensure colours represented are as close to the physical article as possible. Be aware that some colour variations may occur, depending on the screen being used to view product images and also slight dye-lot differences. Please take this into consideration when making your selection.
