Shanghai HIYA was founded in 2002 by two aspiring designers from Shanghai, China. Qianer loves to knit and designs beautiful knitwear. Her brother, an engineer, designed the HiyaHiya knitting needles. Qianer's father, also an engineer, assists in the factory.
The result is a high quality, extensive HiyaHiya range of DPNs, fixed circular needles, interchangeable tips, cables and sets in bamboo and steel, plus a complementary range of beautiful and useful cases and accessories.
