Cindy Goble first learned how to knit and weave at the age of seven with her German/Lithuanian mother Elly who worked with the medium as an art form and a way to show her love for family and friends. Despite a strong independent streak and her frustration with knitting, Cindy kept returning to the needles and loom as a means of expression. By age 15, she had already secured demand from friends, family and beyond, for her Bohemian aesthetic designs.
Cindy’s strong skill and confidence in her work and business evolved from her multi-faceted professional experience, which included retail fashion, modeling and an online perfume business. She also represented London in the Miss Canada beauty pageant. A period in real estate solidified her business acumen.
It’s been a circuitous path, but Cindy believes each life experience has contributed to the launch and establishment of GŌBLE:
“Marriage, two children, family and my mother in particular, who taught me the value of using the best natural yarns and of experimenting with design and technique, inspired me to return to knitting with a passion. Thanks to her guidance and encouragement, as well as that of friends, I am fortunate to work with the finest natural organic materials and provide women with luxurious hand knit and woven accessories.”
Cindy Goble shares her vision and design for GŌBLE with daughter Grace, who is currently a knitter at GŌBLE and once she completes her studies in business, she will play an important role in the company.
THE COMPANY & HISTORY
Headed by Cindy Goble, an established artistic designer who has been knitting, weaving and marketing accessories under her name, for the past five years, GŌBLE officially launched with a daring and irresistible Spring 2016 timeless collection. The company is committed to its mission to remain true to creativity and superior quality of all its products. Every GŌBLE accessory emerges from the combination of refined craftsmanship, strategic distribution and rigorous financial planning.
Thought, style and artistry are put into every GŌBLE accessory which is knitted or woven with innovative yarns. Cindy Goble who is very passionate about GŌBLE accessories confirms that standards are in place to deliver excellence:
“We have a strong belief in tradition, craftsmanship, and quality.”
GŌBLE accessories are created with integrity for women who desire exclusivity, versatility, quality and distinction as well as protective functions. The collection encompasses stylish accessories for work life and many social occasions including fine dining, gallery openings as well as outdoor activities such as skiing and après ski.
GŌBLE Accessories are authentic labours of love and art inspired by the creative collaboration of mind, heart and hands. One by one, various threads, knitting yarns and touches of fur, have found their way into GŌBLE artistry. At first they are beautiful in texture and colour and when woven or knitted together by hand, they become contemporary, timeless and collectible accessories intended for caressing the skin with their softness, and with style, they adorn and comfort the body of a woman.
