About Elena and Kamila

Hi! I’m Karla, the designer behind Elena and Kamila. I named my brand after my two daughters, who are the reason I taught myself to knit and crochet. When I was pregnant, always pictured myself making them hats and blankets but it became so much more than that as I started to fall in love with the process of designing. My designs are all inspired by modern designs, simple stitches and the outdoors. As a family one of our favorite things to do is go camping and hiking, so you will see plenty of inspiration from our time outdoors translated into my designs.
