Teva Durham is a designer of hand-knit and crochet fashions. Dubbed the "mistress of stitchery" by Ruth La Ferla in The New York Times, Teva founded Loop-d-Loop.com in 2000 after a stint as a staff editor at Vogue Knitting.
As one of the first online knitting design sites, in its first incarnation, Loop-d-Loop served up Teva's edgy designs along with intriguing text. At that time, Teva created several iconic knit pieces such as The Braided Neckpiece, The Lace Leaf Scarf and the Drawstring Cowl and featured 'real people' models culled from New York City's downtown art, music and dance scene.
Teva has developed a signature range of eight yarns with modern yet artisanal appeal, distributed by Tahki Stacy Charles, specifically suited to her sculptural designs.
Teva creates two pattern collections per year in her yarns to coincide with the Spring and Fall shipments to your local yarn shop.
