Ryan began knitting when he was in preschool, wanting to take after his Grandma who was wildly creative and a little crazy. When his Grandma would pick him up after school he would watch her craft elaborate dolls from scratch and she would ask him to help design the clothes she would make.
RDB is about creating unique pieces with subtle textures and surprising details-just like the point on that baby hat! Ryan has previously taken on commissions for such things as knitting a scarf and pillows out of dog's hair (the owner asked for keepsakes), knitting a roll of alpaca white yarn onto a toilet paper roll for a bathroom showcase design and a standout 2012 collaboration with Of A Kind, the website founded by Erica Cerulo and Claire Mazur.
Currently based in Los Angeles wrapping up an AA degree in Fashion Design at Los Angeles Trade Tech and taking on product development and personal shopping & styling clients.
