it's Oly and Yossi here. We thought it's been a while since we popped here, on the Knot To Self Journal, and had a good ol' chat with y'all.
Yesterday, just as every second Sunday of the month, we spent on the Rose Bowl Flea Market - one of our favorite places in LA area (Pasadena, to be exact) to dive into the weekend vibes, dig dusty piles of heritage and leave with some great vintage treasures.
Traditionally, we've invited y'all to join our Flea Market Shenanigans via our Instagram, but we also thought to document our current style choices and give you a special glimpse into how we roll with dust, California sun and everyday casualness. Here we go:
- The 'Forget Me Knot' T-shirt (Oly's current favorite)
- wool hat
- macrame tote accompanied by b/w bandana and 'We run to the places we ran from' Pin (check out the ACC bundle option as well)
- budget-friendly version of Birkenstock
Stay bold, fam!

Nah, I wouldn't say we're huge fans of Halloween. We don't dress up or plan to visit super scary attractions. We do love festivities though. We (ahem, Oly) also love to bake. So when it hit us to challenge ourselves and to re-create a cool, classy and KNOT CREEPY at all Halloween atmosphere here at Knot To Self, here's what came out of it. After several hours of dough rolling, cookie cutting and thorough decoration. Let's have a little fam Halloween hang out here on the Knot To Self Journal! (feel free to invite the friends y'all, find SHARE buttons on the left!) Plus, grab the special Halloween discount code at the end of this Chapter.
Happy Halloween, fam!

It's awesome seeing you guys today in our Journal. We've started it last week by inviting y'all for a Studio Tour with us. Yet today we've got some beyond exciting news to share with our fam and the rest of the world. We've been having some hard times keeping it a secret, but not anymore..
We're ready to show our new ring - Force Change - and share it's story, process and inspiration behind in this new chapter of our Journal. Great news : Force Change is available for PRE-ORDER right now.
We've been advocating for True Passion and Breaking The Loop ever since we've launched our store around half a year ago and released our first collection of Finger Statements. We've been welcoming more and more new fam members who joined us on this lifetime long journey and shared our view. One thing has been keeping us awake for turning our lives into the right direction - our hearts on fire for a change.
Force Change. Stay hungry. Don't ever fall asleep on the couch.
Light things on fire! (metaphorically speaking)
We've been up for a challenge to put our vision and our message in a small box, wearable statement. We came up with two elements that connected the most. Fire - a constant reminder to live the moment, to keep your passion alive, to face challenges. Keeping the fire burning is our main goal. Bold typography - Force Change - will remind you to.
Speaking of changes - Force Change is the very first of our Finger Statements that is made of 925 silver.
The Force Change ring is going to be up for pre-order this Saturday, October 10. Our fam will receive a notification on the pre-order start via email (join the list - sign up button at the bottom right). Exciting times!
Update : Force Change ring is up for Pre-Order now!

We're ready to start a brand new chapter of Knot To Self life by documenting, sharing inspiration and creative process behind our products, putting together stories we hope you guys will find interesting here, in the Knot To Self Journal. We are extremely excited, and happy to see you here with us!
We want to start with a personal introduction. You probably already read our story and our vision. Today, we feel like inviting y'all to visit the Knot To Self studio, so here we go - Studio Tour. Right here, right now. Hope you guys will enjoy the journey, buckle up.
Morning scenery : cup of black gold and packing process of Knot To Self orders. Every Finger Statement is going through several steps of careful packaging, we want our customers, our fam to have the best unpacking experience but (K)not only. Every ring comes in a custom wooden box that is perfect for storing your statements, plus makes a (K)notable central piece on your shelf / coffee table / work desk.
Then we usually spend time developing new products, curating inventory, ticking off daily tasks from the never ending to do list, and pouring another cup of coffee (Oly has a caffeine problem, and we publicly admit it).
Afternoon routine : our Instagram is our major creative platform, and we treat it accordingly. We love to hang out and chat with our fam, receive feedback and shoot our thoughts, questions, ideas out there. Verbally and visually. Are you guys with us?
Evenings are for creativity : proven through years, our power hours for creative, winning ideas are at evenings, and at nights. So most of the days, you'll find us working in the studio instead of hitting the late night bars. Don't get us wrong, we manage that part pretty well too (and you'll see our favorite places around LA to stuff faces with drinks / snacks / food here on the Knot To Self Journal down the road). Most of our designs and illustrations are born at nights. Just a fact.
Hope you enjoyed the tour. And our first Journal story. We'll be back shortly.
In the meanwhile, make sure to sign up to our newsletter to receive all the news and updates - our fam gets (K)notified first! Use the window in the bottom right, and you're in!
Let us know how we're doing in the comments. We monitor all the feedback closely and always appreciate your words!
And... you know, we've got lots of great stuff in store for y'all!
