Ori Ami Knits is a labor of love and the result of an idea that started in early 2009. With encouragement from Habu Textiles and the support and assistance from their friends and family, this enterprise has taken shape. Olga and Vanessa have taken on the entire project, ranging from sleepless nights, planning the colors of the garments, yarn selection, photo shoot research, garment styling all the way to detailed consideration of layout design. To read about our creative progress, please follow Ori Ami Knits blog.
The collection is comprised of 15 garments featuring designs for womenswear and accessories, all knit with yarn from Habu Textiles. Two exclusive designs will be available only through subscription on our website while a print edition will be available this spring online and in selected yarn shops across the world.
Ori Ami Knits was photographed entirely by Vanessa in northern California. The romantic woodland environment is the perfect backdrop to showcase the collection. Ori Ami Knits Designs range across 10 sizes with easy-to-follow instructions, clear schematics suitable for beginners and tips and suggestions on how to work with the yarns from Habu. A convenient 9″x 9″ hardcover size is an inspirational addition to any knitter’s library and includes features such as images of knit swatches and insightful notes from the designers.
