My Story


I'm Alison, the founder and knitter behind La Reserve Design. I have always loved making things with my own two hands, working part time as a textile designer in Montreal, and part-time on my own knitwear business.

My favorite things to make are thick, warm blankets. My grandmother gave me a handmade blanket when I was born that followed me throughout most of my childhood, become a reminder of home in my college bedroom. I love making blankets because I can imagine them being used again and again by their owners, moving with them throughout different stages of their homes and lives.
