Founded in 2012, Myrrhia Fine Knitwear is a contemporary women’s knitwear company headquartered in Oakland, Ca. We make clothes that are not costumes, not uniforms, but a form of self-expression. Our inspiration is self-actualization: to reach one’s full potential. We work only with yarns and fibers that are grown and spun in the USA, choosing local and organic whenever possible.
Myrrhia Fine Knitwear is a continuation of a family tradition. Designer and entrepreneur Myrrhia Resneck’s maternal great-grandfather started out peddling clothes out of the trunk of a car. Her grandfather and great-uncle opened a chain of women’s clothing stores in the midwest. Myrrhia’s paternal grandmother taught her to knit at age 7. She designed and completed her first project herself the same week, a little pair of green slippers. Fast forward a couple decades and now Myrrhia produces a line of knits and accessories inspired by friends and family, technology, and space. Myrrhia also offers swatch and sample development for designers.
