Have you ever encountered something so beautiful, so exquisitely crafted and thoughtfully presented, that you simply had to drop everything and investigate further? That’s exactly how I felt when I stumbled upon Niti Niti.
From the moment I stepped inside, lured closer by a long red yarn meandering across the sidewalk, I knew I had found something very special. Simona Muc, the owner and creative force behind Niti Niti, has carefully curated a collection of hand knit clothing and accessories so beautiful, it held my attention for several hours. Everything is made by hand, from her ethereal “spider web” wraps and tunics made of luxurious Japanese silk mohair to her playfully chunky wool sweaters, scarves and poufy floor cushions.
Even the space itself is a thing of beauty. Simona’s background in architecture is evident in every meticulously chosen detail, from the pivoting glass slab door and sophisticated wall color (a Le Corbusier hue) to the hand knit fitting room drapes that create a cocoon of privacy. Everything adds up to make this jewel of a shop anything but ordinary. And if all of this inspires you to pick up your knitting needles, Niti Niti also has a carefully selected collection of yarns available, in a variety of rich, vibrant colors.
Besides being an incredibly talented designer, Simona is one of the loveliest people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. One night a week she hosts an informal knitting group where friends, old and new, can share ideas and knit in a friendly, creative atmosphere.
I can’t wait to return!
