About

Yarn and Fiber and BIG Fiber Tools for Rebels.

Xiane says: Rebel. It’s a term that isn’t for everyone. To some, it sparks that energy of youthful bravado, of trying to figure things out for yourself, of not wanting to be told how to do things or live your life. To others, it seems disrespectful, contentious, undisciplined. DISOBEDIENT, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

So, it’s a loaded word. I accept this, because I’ve been a rebel since birth, and I’ve seen both positive and negative responses to my pushback, my desire to do things my way, to question everything, to not just accept that “this is the way things are done, the end.”
What some people don’t understand is this: one can be a rebel and still be respectful.

As a fiber rebel, I respect TO THE UTMOST that which has come before – the traditions, the work and research, the time dedicated to creating and refining a craft that is practical, but much more than utilitarian.

Without those who created these traditions, I would not be able to do what I do today. They are the foundation of everything I create. They gave me tools that I treasure beyond measure.

But now that I have these tools, I have to go my own way and construct my own traditions – build firmly, respectfully, lovingly on those which came before, but in my own style.

I am not participating in an act of unreasoned rebellion. I am embracing the idea of WHAT IF. I am asking WHY NOT. And occasionally, I am laughing and saying “…what the hell.”

I am stating plainly: just because this is how it has always been does not mean that it is how it should always be. Rebels create change. Change can be scary, but it doesn’t need to be that way. Let’s try new things. Let’s mix them up with the old ways. Let’s have fun. Let’s explore. Let’s rebel.

About me:
Building from the foundation of traditional fiber arts, Christiane Knight has embraced a modern aesthetic of texture and color to convey energy, emotion, and movement. Self taught, she espouses the idea of moving knitting, crochet, weaving, and other fiber arts from the dismissive label of “craft” to a full-fledged artistic form.

Her current work combines natural elements like stones, metals, and plant matter with hand dyed wools and other fibers to create wearable pieces as well as items to adorn the home with what she deems the Urban Mystic style – one foot in the modern world, one in the classic.

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

*as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
*when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
*if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest toimprove my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

*Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
*Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
*Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
*Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

*Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
*Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
*Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
*Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
