It's by studying the color pallets that represent her life and career over the years that designer Louise Robert was able to imagine all of the variety available in these hand-dyed artisanal yarns.
ATHENA is recognized as being, among other things, the goddess of wisdom, craftsmen and artists in Greek mythology. For me, Athena refers to a “high-end” stationary boutique that I loved when I was little because I was going to buy fancy pencils that I collected and notebooks which I spent hours scribbling in. - Louise
