Let's talk about our new signature line of bespoke knitting needles.
I knew I wanted to design my own line of knitting needles becuase I wanted to create a brand that could welcome "new age knitters" without feeling overly pretentious, exclusive to advanced knitters, or "old lady like". I started with the signature matte black needles simply because they're what I wanted and they didn't exist in the market. The needles themselves have a modern, elegant-yet-edgy vibe, but there is so much more to the needles and this brand.
These rad knitting needles are handmade by artisans in India using the best quality natural wood while adhering to VRIKSH Timber legal standards. The sleek wooden needles are then coated with a matte black PU polish. Whether you are new to knitting or a seasoned pro these needles will quickly become your favorite due to their ergonomic design that allows for excellent control over your stitches, and you’ll feel badass while using them!
Each pair of needles comes in an equally sleek and sturdy tube that is not only recyclable but made to be reusable. When we purchased our packaging we joined the producers "eco alliance" and they have planted 10 trees in the production of our tubes. We hope that you keep your tube to store your needles and notions, pack them in your carry on for knitting on the go and more!
We welcome new knitters to our brand and the craft by throwing in a simple knitting pattern with each pair of needles. Currently all patterns are created soley using the knit stitch, we did this in order to help anyone new-to-knitting create something beautiful without feeling overwhelmed.
As you can see, at a n n m a d e we’re committed to quality, sustainability and community, on top of that we are dedicated to making the world a better place for everyone. For every pair of needles we sell we are donating a pair of dollars to Mama Cash. Mama Cash is the oldest international women’s fund in the world. They fund and support women’s rights initiatives around the globe and work towards a more just world for women, girls, and trans and intersex people. The funds raised through Mama Cash go to activists who tirelessly and fearlessly make their voices heard. Who criticize oppressive or restrictive norms and practices, and lobby for fair laws. Who demand their political and economic rights, and insist on bodily autonomy. Together with these activists and donors, mama cash works towards a more just world for women, girls, and trans and intersex people.
We hope that our signature line is just the beginning and that we will be able to offer an entire line of knitting notions to our community. Drop a note and let us know what you love most about our brand and if there's anything else you would like to see in our shop!
