History of Memory Mittens
It started with a Memory. When our customer asked if we could repurpose the wool sweaters her late mother wore to her sister’s Olympic ski races, we were inspired. To honor her late mother, we carefully repurposed these cherished sweaters by cutting them into parts and thoughtfully pieced them together to create handmade mittens that would always keep her mother by her side.
The outside of the mittens have four (4) parts. The front/top, upper palm, lower palm and cuff. Customers' sweaters are usually used for the front/top of the mittens. If one sweater is sent, with customers permission we typically incorporate some of our own material for the upper & lower palm and possibly cuff. If more than one sweater is sent we try to use all of the customers material to create the mittens.
On average we can make 4-6 pairs of mittens depending on the size of sweater, design, stains and holes. The more pairs we make, the more we will have to incorporate some of our own materials. Once we receive the sweater(s), we will confirm the total number of mittens we can make.
Yes, since there are four (4) parts needed to make a mitten you can send up to four (4) or more.
Yes, we try to use as much of the customers materials as possible to create Memory Mittens, including buttons and any special tags/labels
Yes, we will do whatever you like. We like mixing up materials so all of the mittens are unique, but we can also keep them all the same, it is your decision.
We can work with any sweater material. We can make mittens from any garments, if you send it, we will make memories. We have even worked with fur.
In addition to creating Mittens for you, we can also create; Hats, Headbands, Scarves, Bun Warmer Skirts, Fingerless Mittens, Christmas Stockings, and Flower Pins.
All Memory Products come wrapped in our signature Logo Muslin drawstring Bag.
