On a visit to Tokyo’s Ginza market in 2004, Darcy Cameron picked up a handwoven bag dyed with persimmons. She loved the bag’s pure simplicity, described by her Japanese friend as “very shibui,” or “elegant with a touch of bitterness.” This inspired an enduring aesthetic.

Shibui Knits was born in 2007, in the basement of Darcy’s yarn store in Portland, Oregon. She started her own label, bringing yarn of the highest quality to small, independent stores like her own.
