WTF Is Knock Knock?
Knock Knock is an independent maker of products that bring wit, heart, productivity (and occasional light profanity) to everyday life. Our pads, planners, journals, and books help people accomplish their goals, express their feelings, and laugh at the absurdity of modern existence.
We live by (at least) two mottos: “We Put the Fun in Functional” and “Make a List—You’ll Feel Better.” We consider list-making and laughter to be essential forms of self-care. (And, obvs, we love mottos.)
Knock Knock was founded in 2002 by Jen Bilik, and in 2018 we joined forces with Em & Friends (formerly known as Emily McDowell & Friends). Our team of 25(ish) good humans is small but mighty. Together, we form the Who’s There Group—two woman-owned brands under one kickass umbrella!

Mecklenburg Lake District, Germany
In 2011 I founded my label as a small hobby. Over a short period of time I got a lot of requests from local retailers in Berlin and the company grew, so soon it was no longer just a sideline. My vision has always been to design products that inspire and honor the creative life. Over the years, I've dabbled in many different printing techniques and also love giving craft more space in my company. A few years ago, I wanted to live closer and more connected to nature and moved the studio to the countryside in the Mecklenburg Lake District. The highest priority for me is to live in harmony with creativity and nature. Also in the illustrations you can always find stars and celestial bodies that inspire me.

mist & sea
Based in Hilo, Hawaii.
Karalani Cross believes in creating a more beautiful world through sharing gifts from nature with others while supporting environmentally sustainable practices. She spent her summers as a kid at the beach, examining tide pools, jumping from rock to rock, and learning how to swim at a little beach in La Jolla that seals have now taken over. And she's happy they did. In fact, she still spends her summers getting lost and playing by the ocean. Letting go, childlike awe of nature's beautiful gifts that bring smiles and sore cheeks. Feeling free with sun and fresh air on your skin, watching the hypnotic rhythm of waves, ocean heartbeats. Feeling peace within yourself. The joy of watching something grow, a child, a plant, a love. These are the feelings that inspire her to create and design for Mist & Sea. Her air plant creations reflect a vision to heal others through a reconnection to nature, to others, and to themselves. All of our products are created with magical pieces of nature & intention, sharing the healing with our Earth sisters and brothers. She is devoted to creating and sharing nature’s medicine with others through her handmade craft, each piece designed and packaged with recycled, upcycled, and/or biodegradable materials.

Chubby Chico Charms
In 2005 Alana and Bianca Alicea discussed the idea for an all-handmade jewelry company that could have unique stylish designs while still being American made. With a background in jewelry design and hailing from Rhode Island, which was once known as "The Jewelry Capital of the World", both women decided to put their innovative skills to good use and help bring manufacturing back to the states. Years later they expanded to a full bath, beauty, and candle line as well. With the expansion of their fundraising program ChubbyChicoCharms has helped thousands of organizations raise millions of dollars in much needed funds for education, illness awareness, children's groups, sports teams and so many more. None of this would have been possible without dedication, hard work, a tight knit family, and a strong mother/daughter team.
