Cold-weather Treasures

A favorite hat and a spontaneous trip to Peru sparked a new venture for Emily Green, who canvases the country by bus, taxi and foot to find the talented artisans who knit her hats, scarves and arm warmers.

Emily’s designs are modern and impactful, yet also cozy and warm. Her scarves have a sculptural quality that adds dimension to your wardrobe, and her arm warmers deliver an extra punch of personality. They’re made entirely from sheep’s wool or pure alpaca wool, which is warm, durable and hypoallergenic.

All the pieces are handcrafted in Peru, where Emily collaborates with artisans such as Lydia, who learned to knit using a pair of nails as needles, and Rosa, who says she knits best while on her feet, rocking one of her children. Peru has a long history of textile innovations, and the artisans who work with Emily are building on knitting traditions that have been passed down for generations. Emily is passionate about her relationships with the knitters, who are earning supplemental income for their families while gaining positive entrepreneurial experience.

When the chill hits, it’s easy to get wrapped up in Emily’s artistry.
