Behind the Brand
My name is Lizzie Kaya, and I am the founder of my crochet fashion brand, Gimme Kaya. Every crochet piece you see has been designed, crocheted, sewn, packaged and posted by me, (and my very small team who help make my granny squares!). Gimme Kaya is a unique, slow fashion, U.K. based brand, and most of our pieces will have been made from the comfort of my bedroom. We make high quality, soft and stylish crochet garments for the every day festival fairy!
Crocheting started as a hobby for me around 2016. I think it’s safe to say I quickly became obsessed! I jumped straight into designing and making garments for myself, which swiftly moved on to selling my handmade pieces on my depop shop. It was then that the brand ‘Gimme Kaya’ was formed, and I expanded my work over to Instagram. Over the years I have gained quite a lot of attraction for my unique and colourful designs, but 2020 was the year that the Gimme Kaya brand really took off, and allowed me to feature in magazines such as Vogue, Elle, and Simply Crochet.
As the Gimme Kaya brand continues to develop, I hope to grow my crochet team and get my own little studio, so that even more of you can get your hands on one of our handmade creations! Thank you for taking a look at my work, and I hope I can make you something special soon!
Love Lizzie x
