Hector A., Product Assembly 


Hector is our very first employee and he joined Purl & Loop when we were in our very first tiny studio.  Our studio is now in Tulsa but Hector lives and works his regular full time job in Houston.  We now have our loom components laser cut in California and Tulsa and then shipped to Hector for assembly.  We are thrilled that he is still able to work for Purl & Loop remotely and he is an integral component of our business.
