Small Batch Eco-Throws:Each cozy throw is designed in my home studio then crafted by my partner, a family-run artisan knitting mill in the USA. I'm thrilled that they are made with an amazing yarn using recycled cotton. In the recycling process, pre-consumer t-shirt fabrics are re-fiberized back into colorful threads, then spun into beautiful cotton blend yarn. The process reduces landfill use and requires no additional cotton dyes or chemicals.
I individually hand craft each piece on Matilda, my slightly temperamental vintage knitting machine. We got to know each other back in design school and have reunited to create luxurious accessories that look amazing and feel fantastic.

In addition to Betz White Studio Knits, I design a collection of sewing patterns for bags and accessories.
