When we first saw her knitting project bags on Etsy, we immediately fell in love with them. Joan and I have different styles and tastes (case in point: she is a knitter and I’m a crocheter), so when we both fell in love with Jésabelle’s bags we knew there was something special about them. They are minimalistic, fashionable, portable, timeless and just straight up cool.
When Joan and I were preparing to launch our business, we discussed the kind of company we wanted to be. Both of us agreed that we wanted to collaborate with people. Whether we were hosting knit parties or working with yarn brands – it was important for us to collaborate with the people behind the products we carry. Knowing the importance of small businesses to our economy (and being one ourselves), we came up with the idea of HANK & HOOK x Artisans.
We collaborate with artisans across Canada who make tools and accessories to complement your yarn stashes. Throughout the year, we’ll be collaborating with various artisans by carrying a limited selection of their work in our store. We’ll also post an interview series called Get to Know Our Artisans so you can get to know them as well.
Jésabelle B. is our very first feature artisan. You can read our interview with her on how this collaboration came about. Don’t miss out on her limited edition bags currently in stock in our store.
Interested in collaborating with HANK & HOOK? Get in touch with us – we’d love to hear from you.
