About Topi Designs
I started Topi Designs in 1996 at 19 years old, designing, making, and selling winter accessories. I use the highest quality, longest-lasting chenille and wool blend yarns to craft my crocheted hats and scarves. With over 20 years of experience selling direct to customers, Topi Designs has evolved into a brand of versatility and timeless style with a grass roots, sustainable methodology.
My collection consists of a limited variety of styles in a large variety of my favorite colors; mostly earth toned solids and beautifully variegated patterns.
The name "Topi" comes from the word for "hat" in Indonesia, a country that's been my second home and off-season getaway for many years. I feel enormous gratitude for every customer who has helped facilitate this lifestyle and kept Topi Designs alive over the years.
