Needle and Knot, LLC was founded by Boston area artist Kara Dulin. Kara meticulously designs, plans, sources and handcrafts each of her pieces using high quality fibers and other unique materials. Her extensive international travel as well as her time spent living in both New York City and Paris, contribute to her love and appreciation for one-of-a-kind curated goods, each handcrafted with exceptional quality and attention to detail. Many of her designs and stocked items from other artists are inspired by her Mediterranean and Middle Eastern travels as well as her early studies in Fashion Design and Merchandising at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan.
Most of the materials that Kara uses in her designs are produced by fiber artists across the United States, including several farms and other small, independent artists who share similar values of supporting small business ventures, encouraging eco-friendly craftsmanship and spreading good vibes through art and creative expression.
Established in 2015, Needle and Knot has already garnished a lot of attention from the creative world. Kara's work has been featured on Green Wedding Shoes, 100 Layer Cakelet, Fawn Over Baby, Sandy a la Mode, The Livery HelloLoveHandmade, CYL Collective, Craftsposure, The Weaving Kind, Makers Village, FaveHandmade and published in Canada by Maker's Movement magazine and in Ireland by Ireland's Wedding Journal magazine.
Kara currently lives north of Boston with her husband and their five year old daughter, Ella.
