Hi friends, 

I'm sooo happy to release my collection of handmade beanies + scarves. I was inspired to start making knitwear because of the numerous at-home-remedies behind my husband's upbringing in the Republic of Moldova. He spent a lot of time with his family in a small village outside of the capital city, where tradition was strong. They grew grapes, housed their own wine, gardened vegetables, pickled fruit, raised livestock, made clothing, and the stories go on. 

There were a few winters when you wouldn't know I had a forehead, because I was always wearing a beanie. I've learned that a snug cap is absolutely necessary to surviving in the Windy City. My collection of knitwear accessories is a simple attempt at creating a medium I love, inspired by a person I love. While the designs themselves are not traditional to Moldovan aesthetic, they represent the light-hearted and charming wit of my husband. Here I am embracing the truth. We grew up in two completely different cultures, yet we were destined to relate when our souls connected during our 22nd and 25th years. 

About the models...how lovely are Cynthia and Joyce in these photos?! They are a power couple with stunning features and knock-out personalities. Check out Cynthia's music page, also known as, CYN. A lady with pure talent. 

As the air continues to chill, I hope you enjoy my new products.

Until next time, stay cozy...

 

Love, 
Ari
