About A. Holmes
A. Holmes History
It started with a rug, next came the throws and blankets, then to complete the set came the pillow. Each piece is hand knit with love. Knitting is in the very DNA of A. Holmes.
Founded by A. Capel on a cold night in 2017, A. Holmes is a tribute to her two knitting grandmothers, Ann and Audrey, and to those family roots, the Holmes'.
A. Holmes Philosophy
A. Holmes is committed to creating handmade knit objets d'art for your home that you will want to keep forever. Each piece is handmade from original designs, and no two are exactly alike. A. Holmes believes in ethical manufacturing, and using sustainable and recycled materials whenever possible.
A. Holmes Creator
A. Capel started by creating dresses, first from tissue paper and then from scraps of material her mother would bring home from work, for her barbies. Whenever she could get her hands on scraps of fabric she would start creating something different out of what was in front of her.
Her love of art took her to OCAD in Toronto, studying photography and curatorial practices. After working for Apple as a visual merchandiser, her love of fashion took her to Parsons in NYC. This is where her love of knitting began, and where the idea for A. Holmes was born.
