Since the moment Esje de Wet's aunt taught her to knit at the age of six, she has never stopped. The therapeutic effect and relaxation brought on by the clicking of needles together with the touch of luxurious yarns and fibres gave her comfort and joy during years of studying, raising a family and building a practice.

When Daniël arrived, Esje applied her favourite hobby at producing knitwear for her first grandson that was not only practical and of good quality, but also had relatively easy washing instructions for his mother. 

Inspired by the positive response from family and friends, Ouma Essie continues to create charmingly pretty embroidery designs for her hand knitted jerseys in order to share her passion with you.
