HiyaHiya was founded in 2002 in Shanghai by Qianer Huang, a talented knitwear designer who back then saw a gap in the market when she could not find the quality of needles she wanted for her designs. Along with her brother and father, both talented engineers, she was determined to find a solution to the problem and has since designed and manufactured the unique HiyaHiya knitting system, including the revolutionary Interchangeable Straight Needles, which are a design first.

HiyaHiya has since developed into one of the world's most popular knitting needles brands, gaining a solid reputation for pioneering design, creating knitting needles, crochet hooks and accessories which knitters & crocheters love to use
