Woolly Buddha was born in October 2012, after my daughter and I were disappointed by the unoriginal, mass produced knitted accessories on the high street. Our big, bold hats, scarves and stoles are designed to be statement pieces, which we hand-knit out of premium yarns such as hand-spun British Alpaca, merino wool and hand-dyed mulberry silk, much of which is produced to our specifications.
I have a passion for puzzles and problem solving, which is why I love the design process. I use organic shapes and take inspiration from nature and architecture, to produce unusual and versatile creations. While the design may be key, it’s also our choice of colours, texture and sumptuous materials that attract our customers in the UK and worldwide.
Our signature piece, the Divalicious stole harks back to Hollywood’s ‘golden era’, and exudes glamour and allure. Using one of knitwear sticks can quickly turn our Versatile scarf into a cowl or wrap, giving three looks for the price of one. All of our pieces are designed to make the wearer feel special. We searched for a retail outlet to market our accessories and Fabrication, with its fantastic variety of original, artisan-made products, was the ideal choice.
