HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
I can’ believe it – 2008 is here. After clearing out the old and wanting to bring in the new there is a bright view on the horizon.
SRO is now in negotiations with a Fair Trade knitting manufacturer in Africa for production of their Fall line. The beauty of organic yarns, natural dyes and thick chunky textures will be all the rage for 2008 and beyond. Mohairs and natural wools are in abundance in Africa and will be in high demand with market trends towards organic fibres. These manufacturers have never used chemicals to produce their yarns and all of it is handspun. Fair Trade knitters in this region are an untapped market and have been wonderful to work with.
Closer to the home front, we will be leaning strongly toward organic and alternative fibers for the future. SRO will feature stunning velvety mohairs, llama blends and creamy organic cotton crochet all season. We have handpicked some of the finest New York hand crocheters and hand knitters to work on our production and design team.
See you soon!
