BerkSherps started on a whim in 2016. Thanks to a lifelong thyroid disease, owner and creator Tonia Depson was cold in her basement sewing studio while making some children's ponchos. She snagged a piece of Sherpa from the fabric pile and added some knit. After showing some friends and making a Facebook page, her hand sewn and ridiculously warm products grew in popularity. Tonia makes both scarves and blankets.
Tonia, who lives in Pittsfield, MA generally works solo, but her husband and two daughters help out in the studio from time to time around the busy holidays.
