The London-based knitwear line is a one-woman shop, owned and operated by the charming Ringo Yu. I spoke to Ringo for a piece I did on SHK Magazine and our conversation was nothing short of enjoyable.
Here are a few fun facts from our chat:
•She was born in Taiwan and moved to London on a whim in 2007
•She studied at Central Saint Martins - first in both printing and knitting, and later focusing her concentration on knitwear alone
•Ringo is inspired by the process of knitting - sometimes her patterns are planned in advance, sometimes her color combinations and patterns are inspired by the process
•It takes roughly five days to make a single piece
•She considers herself a workaholic and is often inspired by children's books
•She's been drawn to London as a creative center since she was a teenager, when she read books about the stall holders and markets in the city
