Hand Knitting

The women of the hills - expert hand spinners and knitters - are the nurturers of Peoli.

Each Peoli product is hand knitted by women artisans. Hand knitting is a process of interlocking loops of one or more yarns using needles. An important skill present in the local knowhow of women in Uttarakhand, hand knitted products are warm, comfortable and each piece is nurtured out of the effort of a woman artisan.

We have a detailed archive of a variety of hand knitting structures prevalent in the local vocabulary of the region. Peoli's wide range of hand spun and naturally dyed yarn of various qualities in a variety of natural materials is hand knitted into unique Peoli textures. We strive at achieving a synthesis of innovation in keeping with the traditional skills embedded in the region and following ethical processes.
