Meet Our Team

The current team consists of two part-time knitters and a local manager in Cusco, Peru. Silvia is with her extensive network, can-do attitude, and background in accounting a valuable asset for the expansion of the company. Nona and Libia have skills and experience making the most beautiful handmade, high quality products. In Tallinn, Estonia, Helena is our social media wizard. Maiko takes care of the accounting for the company, and Jack, my partner with extensive experience in business management and finance, is always available to give counsel.

  • Nona | Knitter & Product Design 

    Nona started as the first knitter of Yanantin and has designed many of our beautiful products. And all that while taking care of her grandson, Nico. Luckily she loves to spend her hours knitting, manually or with her power-knitting machine.
