Alaila Lee is a seventeen year old entrepenuer residing in New York looking to change the knitting world -- one ball of yarn at a time. She always had a passion for knitting, ever since her grandmother taught her at the age of nine. The power and creativity behind knitting, and the ability to turn a yarn into almost anything you can imagine, is what drove her to start her own company. Alaila Lee is a line of knitwear from bows to hats and scarves, all made by hand. With that, she built her own brand designing and assembles each package personally, catering to every individual customer. She dreams to bring the light back onto knitting in this big world.
