"I have always loved things made by hand,” says knitwear designer SIUYIN CHAU. Originally from Hong Kong, Siuyin’s love for knitwear was inspired by her grandmother who taught her how to knit at the age of six. Creating something with just two sticks and some yarn fascinated her so much, knitting became a life long passion.

A graduate of FIT, Siuyin produced her first collection in 1997.  Then wanting to design and create a collection that would truly reflect her personal style, Siuyin relaunched a namesake collection in 2003. Taking inspiration from the 60’s to the 80’s and with an innate sense to detail, Siuyin creates pieces that are not only timeless in style but are modern, simple and uniquely her own.

Consisting mostly of exquisitely hand knitted garments, the SIUYIN CHAU collection uses only the finest quality materials.  When asked why she loved things made by hand, the designer simply states, "Because you can feel the love of the person who made the piece."

SIUYIN CHAU is based in New York and her collection can be found at specialty boutiques across the US, Europe, Canada and Asia.
