Based between New York, Brooklyn and Lithuania, The Knotty Ones is a sustainable knitwear label founded by three best friends, Sandra, Danute and Akvile, who set out to create the perfect knit. One that is sustainable, affordable, has a contemporary feel and empowers the women making them.
By selling exclusively online and directly to their customers, they avoid traditional markups, making sustainable fashion more accessible. More importantly, each purchase empowers the craftswomen, who are mostly stay-at-home moms in rural areas of Lithuania, who often struggle to support their children.
The Knotty Ones celebrate quality garments that will last you for many seasons to come, hence their focus on creating individual pieces rather than collections. They source only natural and sustainable fabrics while incorporating better practices throughout the supply chain to make beautiful knitwear at a fraction of the environmental impact of fast fashion.
