        Recognized for her minimal aesthetic and attention to fine detail, Julie designs knitwear that is simultaneously casual and elegant. Her signature style evolved over many years of work as a visual merchandiser, art director, and freelance designer. A lifelong passion for fiber led her to receive a BA in Clothing & Textiles;, then it took her nearly two more decades to discover—and focus entirely on—hand knitting. Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Julie spends her time designing for her independent label as well as for other brands such as Purl Soho and Brooklyn Tweed.
