The Artstring Boutique in Hollywood makes knit clothing cool for a change.

The Artstring Boutique in Hollywood makes knit clothing cool for a change.

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One Los Angeles boutique is literally in the business of stringing its customers along.

The Artstring Boutique in Hollywood gets down to the knitty gritty of fashion by selling handmade clothing, accessories, and art made completely out of yarn, wool, and other cozy fibers.

Owner Emilie Odeile says the shop’s funky fashions – which are custom-created on site – prove that people “can make anything out of yarn” and that knit clothes can actually be cool.

She explains, “It doesn’t have to look like anything your grandma made for you. It can be hip and high-fashion. You won’t see a single reindeer or Christmas tree on anything in here.”

Even then, Odeile is happy to make anything to order.

Shoppers can choose their favorite yarn from a massive, 17-by- eight-foot wall and have Odeile handmake anything their heart fancies.

In the past, she’s knitted everything from rhinestone- covered ball gags to “penis cozies.”
