Meet Our Vendor: Morph Knitwear
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Angela Thornton, I’m the owner and designer at Morph Knitwear, a Portland based production specializing in handcrafted knitwear. The philosophy of Morph Knitwear is to create beautiful, functional things, to explore texture and fiber, to enable thoughtful consumption, and to re-establish an intimate and meaningful relationship between clothier and customer.
Any new exciting news you’d like to share with our readers?
I was just able to take over a beautiful new space to use as a studio and showroom – a huge and exciting step for my business as I’m now able to offer fittings, have customers come into the showroom to shop, and engage more fully with the community around me here in Portland!
Is this a full-time business for you?
Yes! I feel so lucky to be able to do what I love, and what essentially started out as an experiment, as a full time job now.
What’s your favorite item that you sell?
I absolutely adore the Cotton + Linen work dress and the Merino Wool Vest. Those two pieces have become the most reliable staples in my closet, and I wear either of them at least once a week.
What’s the best experience you’ve ever had with one of your customers?
I’m not sure if I can narrow it down to just one experience! I am so thankful for my customers; I love that the clothing I make somehow addresses something deeper in those who choose to wear it. Because I make every single piece of Morph Knitwear by hand, each customer is getting a real, tactile interaction with the purchase of their garment, an experience which cultivates a space for us to connect as humans in a way that I value immensely.
