How it’s Made

Each of our crocheted items is hand-stitched by our crafters in-house. We start by sourcing various threads and yarns to create the best color and texture combinations for each item. We source a wide variety of yarn from national and international manufacturers. We prioritize a few factors when it comes to sourcing our materials (Color, Texture, Ethics, Longevity, and price). Though we do use some retailers in a pinch, we prefer to source our yarn from other markers and crafters, and even dye some of our yarn in-house. One of our ultimate business goals is to produce and process our materials from start to finish. We have a few Vegan crafters and family members, so we take steps to ensure our materials are cruelty-free and free from animal products.

When specially requested, we only source wool from GOTS-certified vendors with values that align with our views on animal welfare. Unless requested, all items will be made with a blend of plant and synthetic fibers.

After we have our thread and fibers selected we use our hand-crafted patterns to stitch each piece together. Our crochet Items have been known to take 2 hours to 72 hours to produce depending on complexity. Each stitch is created by human hands, with techniques that have yet to be replicated by machine technology. Our crafters are skilled in traditional crochet, Tunisian Crochet, Knitting, embroidery, and sewing. Using heirloom techniques unique to each crafter. Each item we create is beautifully unique.

As we stitch up each piece we use a mix of stuffing and filling to keep each item plush and soft. You can expect a mix of natural and synthetic fillings (Cotton, Acrylic, Polyfill, and Upholstery grade foam, misc thread fibers, and clippings for low-waste stuffing).
