My Nan taught me to knit when I was 7, and I haven’t stopped knitting since. After studying at Central Saint Martins my best buddy Aurelie Popper and I met the lovely Lisa Sabrier, where we all shared a deep mutual love for building a brand full of love and inspiration.
Knitting is a skill that has and always will have the ability to bring everyone together no matter what age or skill level – I think that’s what made me realise how big the Gang could become.
I’ve always been very passionate about all things good for the world, there are too many negatives associated with fashion and that’s something that I’d like to see change. The Gang is equally passionate and it’s something that drives us to be bigger and better!
Every day brings about a new challenge and a new sense of excitement. No two days are the same at the Gang and that’s all part of learning the works of a business!
We’ve combined DIY with sustainable design, to make knitting fun, sexy, fast and accessible for a whole new generation of people. We produce products that are designed for everyone, young or old, for newbies or intermediate knitters, and collaborate with producers whose values match ours.
(Most rewarding) It’s got to be the journey of seeing a small idea grow and grow into something big and beautiful! Seeing people accomplish and complete their first project is always so rewarding and ultimately seeing people do something that they love.
