Hi, we're Orwell + Austen

We are a one woman brand, and create beautiful and playful cashmere and cotton knitwear pieces designed to champion environmentally conscious, sustainable, socially responsible, and ethical production. 

We only use luxurious natural yarns for our pieces, and all of our knitwear pieces are lovingly crafted in Nepal by a small, ethical, family-run producer in the Kathmandu Valley - with whom we have worked for almost a decade.
