More About Our Maker
Alison is the artist behind La Reserve Design, a cozy knitwear shop for modern, everyday knitting projects. Based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Alison was taught to knit by her grandmothers at a young age. Since then she has been working on her craft, eventually leaving her job in the corporate textile industry to pursue her shop as a full time maker. Alison’s designs are driven by the ideas of comfort, ease, relaxation and warmth. Her background in textile design pushes her to combine different fibers together, playing with texture and dimension in every garment she makes. She shares with us that knitted homewares make her especially excited to pick up her needles as she believes a happy home is handmade, and having handmade items displayed in your home is an instant conversation starter.
