I’m so thankful and honored to have the opportunity to interview the wonderful and very talented Irina Hubbard. She is the creator and owner of Purl Lamb, an adorable clothing line for children. The company which was created three years ago, is named “after the Lord, the Lamb of God.” In her shop you will find the very cutest pants, shorts, sleepers, and one of my personal favorites the Delux Ear Hoodie. In addition to her talents as a designer, she is an incredible photographer, knitter, and Orthodox Christian. She is such a wonderful example of living our faith, and especially through our work. I so am excited to continue to shop at Purl Lamb in the years to come, and am so thankful she took the time to do this interview! You can see the whole collection here at the Purl Lamb store.
My Name: Irina Hubbard
My Patron Saint: Saint Irina
Company Name: Purl Lamb
What I make: Children Clothes
Why I love it: I love creating things with my hands. I love seeing a finish product wrapped and sent out the door.
How it started: Purl Lamb started as a newborn photography business five years ago. I taught myself how to knit in order to create new props for my photo shoots. Soon thereafter, I started having a large demand for my knits from other photographers. Knitting turned into sewing and the rest is history.

How being Orthodox impacts my work: I rely on God to guide me and inspire me. Without Him I can’t do anything.

If I could tell our youth one thing it would be: Never be ashamed of the One who made you. Put God first. Always.
