Alexandra Tavel | Two of Wands

map-pin New York, United States

Two of Wands knitwear is a modern approach to a timeless art form. The brand focuses on simple stitches and techniques to create sophisticated knits with inspiration coming from the world around us - nature, history, culture, trends, and function.
I'm so lucky to have been able to travel all over the world, and I always draw inspiration from the different countries I've visited and the local artisans who create such unique pieces in their communities. It was on one of my travels that the Two of Wands label was solidified.
In 2013 I climbed to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, and when I reached the other side I met a woman who offered to read my tarot cards. The Two of Wands was drawn and my future was set in motion. This card is focused on taking the path of discovery and creativity, taking your ideas and desires and turning them into a solid plan for success. It is about stepping into that scary but exciting unknown and believing that you have the potential to shine.
