H E L L O + W E L C O M E!
My name is Meg and I'm the one lady band behind Olive + Arrow. Established in 2010, I've been creating custom, authentic, handcrafted knitwear and home decor out of my home studio located in Northern Virginia. I'm originally from a small town in New England, where my family has lived for hundreds of years. We moved to Virginia when I was about 4 and I was raised in the South. My mom taught me how to knit when I was little, on my grandmothers needles, which I still use to this day.
I was born with an entrepreneurial spirit and I've been knitting and creating most of my life, so it only seemed natural that I discovered my true passion for developing and running my own business, as an adult. My vision has always been to create modern, fun and unique pieces, that break the stereotype of a traditional knitted item. I've always had a love for design, patterns, texture, color and creating- being able to utilize these interests in my creations, is what truly drives my passion for this work! The greatest pleasure I get from creating these handmade pieces of awesomeness, is seeing my customers rocking their O+A!
Olive + Arrow is my passion. Lots of love, care (and maybe a little blood, sweat & tears-- sorry!) go into every single item that I make. I hope you love your experience here, just as much as I have creating these pieces.
Let's be friends! Follow me on Instagram for a look behind the scenes of O+A! (and most likely a lot of awesome randomness as well 😉)
