Innovation in Crochet
In the Andean highlands, a unique hybrid of European crochet and indigenous backstrap loom weaving techniques has evolved over the past 500 years. This technique is entirely handmade, each product composed of thousands of meticulous stitches. Able to utilize an unlimited number of colours, complex patterns can be woven cleanly into flat or fully-formed objects.
These possibilities are further explored in our upcoming collection of mindful pieces for home. Read more about this work is combined with our social innovation project here.
