About Charlotte Hess
isobel & cleo is a knitwear company named after my mother and grandmother. I create a line of women's sweaters and sweater knits using vintage hand operated knitting machines. I source luxury yarns primarily from the UK and Italy.
While on one hand, my goal is to create a handmade maker business that generates jobs and revenue for my local community and economy, my purpose and passion is to preserve traditional handmade craft, increase production of ethical, handmade goods made in the US, and also grow my business to the level where I can start to make a real difference to other small artisanal businesses like my own.
