About

French Knot believes that responsible sourcing and handcrafting can create beautiful products that not only endure, but also celebrate talented women artisans, time-honored craftsmanship, and sustainable practices. French Knot follows fair trade principles and pays the artisans a living wage. Some women choose to knit from their homes while they care for their families, and others prefer to work together in knitting circles. Quality is an important measure at French Knot. Winter accessories are sourced from 100% lambswool and high-end mohair to ensure every piece is velvety soft and enduring. The wool is then spun and dyed by hand, a traditional process that produces little to no emissions - emphasizing both lasting quality and social responsibility.

French Knot is run by a dedicated team of women who work hand in hand with female artisans in Nepal to bring our customers truly unique and inspiring pieces. Our products are handmade, vintage inspired and one-of-a-kind designs for women of multiple generations.

Using natural and ethically sourced materials, our products are created with fair trade and sustainable practices providing high and lasting quality.

Founding Story

Lindsay Mason grew up in the small historic town of Sturbridge, Massachusetts where she discovered early on her love for antique shops. Invariably she was attracted to vintage textiles and hats, as her personal style and love of color continued to flourish. Later Lindsay would graduate from Syracuse University’s Fashion and Textiles Design program and enter the fashion industry, designing for companies such as Simplicity, Free People, and Icelandic Design.

Seven years later, Lindsay started French Knot (named after her favorite embroidery stitch). Since then, she has released a new line each fall for the last nine years. Her hand-drawn designs highlight intricate embroidery, a glowing color palette, and beautiful embellishments that recall a vintage, feminine feel. By mixing beautiful patterns with warm and cozy yarns, French Knot accessories appeal to women of all ages and also last for generations to come. Major retailers began taking notice of French Knot from the very start. Now French Knot products are sold in Anthropologie stores, Sundance catalog and over 200 other retailers across the US.
