On Etsy since 2015

Family with a passion for all things handmade and sustainable <3

The story of Knit&Green, a quirky family business providing an affordable alternative to fast fashion, officially dates back to December 2015. However, our journey is part of a family tradition that stretches back decades.

- Slovenia, Spring 1975 -
Mateja, aged 12, falls in love with a new hobby that would go on to define her life. Her mum had just started attending a sewing course at a local Arts & Crafts club and Mateja’s days revolve around watching her mum use the oh-so-fascinating sewing machine. It’s not long before she puts her own sewing skills to the test - she tailors, cuts, sews and decorates her own designs. The hard work pays off when her mum admits, in a mere months' time, that Mateja's sewing skills have surpassed those of her own!

In the following decade, Mateja adds to her sewing repertoire with knitting and crocheting. She invests in a brand new sewing machine, wholly absorbed in the world of sewing. She knits and sews for her entire family, the kids in her neighborhood and her friends - Christmas present ideas are always plentiful! She starts her own company, making children's knitwear in 1988. Four years later, she gives birth to her daughter Tajda, who grows up covered in Mateja's designs from head to toe. In the meantime, Mateja finds herself sidelined by a swirl of other work, and having to raise two children on top of that, decides to close down her small knitwear shop at the cusp of a new century.

- Slovenia, Winter 2015 -
Mateja has now had 40 years of experience in sewing. Her family home in Slovenia's capital, Ljubljana, still has a special room dedicated to sewing, her all-time favourite hobby. But her professional sewing career had been temporarily put on hold. That is until her daughter, Tajda, introduces her to Etsy.com. Together, they soon start selling a collection of their favourite designs under the name Knit&Green. Apart from helping out with the production process, Tajda is the store's photographer, marketer and customer care manager, while Mateja is the driving force behind supplying and manufacturing the items.

We are both so grateful to have the opportunity to share our story with you. Knit&Green is all about providing durable knitted items that have been handcrafted with passion. Our items are gender-neutral, and we want to cater to people of all shapes and sizes. That's why we offer to make any of our items according to your own specifications, at no extra cost. We strive to add an extra-special touch to all our orders by writing a personalised thank you note and gift-wrapping all our orders.

The history of our shop is woven into every design with love, and we guarantee you will become the proud owner of a unique item you will treasure for life.
