About the Founder -
I began crocheting as a way to reconnect with my childhood and my roots.
As an immigrant from South America, Brazil, moving to the United States was an adjustment. Finding the balance between being Brazilian, and becoming American the longer I live here. I wanted to find a way to combine those two cultures along with bits of my own style and personality into something that was representative of me.
During a visit to my father's hometown in Brazil, I watched my Nonna, 96, work her crochet needle and create the most beautiful objects. Blankets, purses, kitchen towels, decorations, all in a style of her own, she made something out of string, and I was mesmerized. While visiting my Mother's parents, I watched as my grandma (whom I affectionately call Vo) created the cutest little creatures. She introduced me to a style of crocheting that was completely different, so vibrant and colorful, each amigurumi cuter than the prior one, and not only did she make animals, but she created my favorite childhood characters, home decorations, and even a gorgeous crochet rug! She helped me see that the only limits to what you can do with yarn are in your imagination.
I got home, picked up a hook of my own, and the rest is history.
Each piece you see here Is unique, inspired by things I have seen or loved. I do not follow patterns and I find joy in creating things that, to me, are representations of my culture and life, in wearable art.
