Inspired by the dynamic creativity within all of us, Myrrhia is a line of knitwear made in Oakland, CA that utilizes organic merino wool milled in Maine and organic cotton grown and milled in California.
Myrrhia is a continuation of a family tradition. Designer Myrrhia Resneck’s maternal great-grandfather started out peddling clothes out of the trunk of a car. Her grandfather and great-uncle opened a chain of women’s clothing stores in the midwest. Myrrhia’s paternal grandmother taught her to knit at age 7. She designed and completed her first project herself the same week, a little pair of green slippers. Fast forward a couple decades and now Myrrhia produces a line of knits and accessories inspired by friends and family, technology, and space. Myrrhia also offers swatch and sample development for designers.
