About Seasons of East

An independent pattern company run by sisters Carol and Barbara. I met them at the Knitting & Stitching Show in October 2021 and loved their patterns. The clean designs that champion vintage fabrics. The designs are classic but definitely have a nod to vintage style, this t-shirt reminds me of the relaxed styles of the 1980s. It is important to me that every product I stock at Olive Road adheres to my ethical and sustainable values. Seasons of East also put these values at the forefront of their business.
