Ambika moved to New York from Australia over ten years ago to embark on a career in fashion photography. During her downtime during photo shoots Ambika began crocheting bikinis. The teeny bikinis were an instant hit with colleague and models alike and Ambika Bikini followed. These form-fitting bikinis have graced the covers of Sports Illustrated and Maxim.
Ambika's next vision was to create a cruelty-free alternative to fur made by local crocheters. Not able to source angora suppliers locally, she set out to produce her own eco-fiber, which allows her to completely own the production process from the production source (rabbits) to completion (market). So she set out for a farm in the Catskills to raise a breed of English angora rabbits and creating finished designs from their fur. The result is a collection of luxuriously soft, warm and non-itchy accessories. Each piece is hand-shorn, hand-spun then handknitted. No bunnies are harmed so you can enjoy the look and feel of real fur without the guilt.
