    Look for our handmade symbol on our beanies and various accessories. These select items have been made, with fine attention to detail, by the hands of the Akinz shop crew. With the help of our vintage knitting machine in our shop, we take pride in crafting Coloradoan knitted items to keep you stylin’ and warm while boarding, biking and bar hopping. And holding true to our desire to provide high quality goods, you will still find shop employees (like Coleen below) behind the counter hand crocheting beanies and headbands for your wearing pleasure.
