Karyn Villante is a knit designer with a strong background in the domestic knitting industry. Karyn specializes in knits made with cotton grown in the US, spun and plyed in the Carolinas, knit in the New York metropolitan area, dyed here and sewn here. Karyn Villante's mission behind MADE*HERE NEW YORK® is to provide beautiful cotton sweaters and blankets manufactured locally, using the best and most detail-oriented mills. In the face of factory collapses and inhumane working conditions overseas, she's especially dedicated to giving consumers an outlet to shop with a conscience.
