Isobel + Cleo is not your grandma’s knitwear. Founder Charlotte Hess weaves together cozy luxuries with the most innovative, unique and tactile yarns—think alpaca! Silk! Chiffon! Conceived in Glasgow, Scotland, Charlotte now knits up her worldly-influenced designs at her bright and airy Nantucket studio. Her knitted garments lay among a curated collection of ethically-responsible, independent designers, which affirms the community and creative spirit of the island.
“When people say ‘It takes a village’ to accomplish something special,” says Charlotte, “No where is this more true than Nantucket—we all help and want each other to succeed.” Watch below as we dish with Charlotte on island life and entrepreneurship, and don’t miss the cameos by her mischievous Great Dane pup Frankie.
