The signature Ohhio look was created in 2015 by Anna Marinenko (whose superhero name is Anna Mo), totally by accident. When a large skein of merino wool caught her eye, she started knitting it using her arms instead of needles — just to try it. She snapped a quick photo of the chunky result, put it up online, and response convinced her that this style is destined to be huge. On December 2015, Ohhio successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign, and brought chunky knit to the mainstream.
Since then, Ohhio has grown from a one-person operation to a team of twenty, and we continue creating new designs in a thick-knit style while staying true to Ohhio’s minimalist roots.
We believe in innovative, honest, and practical design. Furthermore, we believe that perfect design is simple. Because beauty doesn’t need enhancement — it just is.
It’s all about the quality and sensuality. We create all our products by hand to make them really special.
