I absolutely love Emmanuelle Esther sweet knitted accessories. The French designer's knitted range of headpieces, ring and bangles is just further confirmation that grandma was way cooler than you ever gave her credit for!

Implications - The DIY movement, catalyzed by the recession and fueled by online communities such as Etsy, has inspired a resurgence in traditional handicrafts such as crochet, knitting and embroidery. Today's artisans, however, are infusing their creations with avant-garde cues from contemporary fashion, such as volume, draping and elaborate styling, to add drama and appeal to a younger demographic. Many individuals of this target market may only have been exposed to knits and crocheted items through Grandma.
