I'm Alicia, nice to meet you! I launched Knots & Such in 2018 (on my grandmother's birthday, January 9th) shortly after I tried m a c r a m e for the first time and simply put - fell in love. I fell in love with the entire process from start to finish - gathering the perfect supplies, throwing on some music, and zoning in while hand-tying knot after knot after knot until each piece is complete.
You could say the desire to c r e a t e has always been instilled in me, deep down. My family came to America from a villa in Abruzzo, Italy - my great grandmother, before her passing, used to knit beautiful & intricate blankets in her family's home in Boston, and to this day my grandmother sews clothing for the family and works on various projects in her spare time. They both hold such a special place in my heart and are a big part of the inspiration behind Knots & Such.
What l i g h t s me up? Creating the perfect piece for you to accent the space you love. There is nothing I love more than creating a macrame piece, seeing and feeling someone's reaction upon receiving their piece, and seeing the piece in its new home.
I live and create all my pieces in a quaint little suburb just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Each piece from the collection or that you custom order will be hand-made by me, in my home, with love.
