Crochet and knit gone chic
I opened my shop in 2007 and listed my first item on Valentine’s day 2008. I learned how to crochet as a little girl of 10 from my mum who taught me crocheting, knitting, embroidery and basket weaving. I started off with making dollies as a little girl, my mom would find dollies and ask me to reproduce them without a pattern just by sight and that’s how I learned to crochet.
I Make up ALL of my patterns, my inspirations comes from fashion trends, vintage clothing, blogs, random images that I come across. All of this will give me an idea for a product, and Ill go ahead and make it.
I spend time researching the best yarn for my products, 98% of my tops swimwear and dresses are made using natural fibers mainly cotton, a few bamboo, silk and linen yarn. 2% of the tops are made using acrylic yarn in an effort to keep some of the prices low. I tend to use wools, alpacas and occasionally cashmere for my sweaters. I am also constantly improving designs incorporating customers feedback. and some of the designs have come about because of customers feedback and suggestions.
Orders are typically filled in the order in which they come. I make approximately 3-6 tops a day depending on the complexity of the designs. Most of the tops take me 2-3 hours to complete some of the most complex tops take 3-5 hours to make. Dresses, swimwear and sweaters take much long to make on average a dress takes 8hrs and sweater range from 10 to 30hrs ( my kimono sweater)
I try my best to ship at the specified time but occasionally I fall behind if I have 7-10 orders all due the same day. I ship first class and priority mail.
I know you have chosen to buy your item for a special day or occasion or season and I try my best to work with you to get your item to you. I appreciate your patience in the process of making these orders.
