onnesti's Shop Announcement

Welcome to my shop - ONNESTI (pronounced "honesty")News Flash: JANE WIEDLIN of the GO GO's just bought my travelling crunch hat in all 9 colors!! and CYNTHIA ROWLEY bought a number of my raffia hats for her East Hampton, NY store!!!

Customer wrote:Wow Abby, what an amazing hat!! The only sun hat that doesn't make me look like a dork! :)) I LOVE it! Thank you for making such a wonderful hat for me.

FYI: I decided to REDUCE my prices to make things more affordable during these HARD TIMES! And now I'm having a SUPER SALE!

Everything I make is 100% handmade by me. I never use a knitting machine for my hand knits, and I even braid my own raffia for my hats and accessories. No two pieces are ever exactly alike!

I use the finest yarns from here and around the world, many of which are hand dyed and hand spun. I use a very high quality raffia from Madagascar that is vegetable dyed.

I've been selling my hand knits and handwoven raffia hats and accessories in a number of shops in Woodstock, NY for years now, in the beautiful Catskill mountains where I live .

Thanks so much for looking!

Peace! - Abby

MANY THANKS TO FIONN REILLY who took the wonderful shots of my raffia hats and vests with our lovely friend and model, Elysee Rossignol. Check him out at, and Elysee Rossignol on facebook!

P.S. If the item you are looking at disappears, I've sold it in one of the shops in Woodstock! Better not wait too long! Or ask me if I can make another similar one!
