Artisanal Expertise

I am an experienced crocheter who comes from a long line of Greek makers. I have been crocheting for decades. I pride myself on designing garments for the person who appreciates slow fashion, uniqueness in a sea of disposable fast fashion and meticulous attention to detail.

Handcrafted Excellence

The top is carefully handcrafted from start to finish. The thousands of stitches that have gone into making this garment have been made by me. I do not outsource any part of this process. This garment comes directly from me to you. This hands-on approach guarantees a level of quality and uniqueness that cannot be replicated by mass production methods. Each garments takes many days to make and is designed to be timeless, versatile, made to last a lifetime, and to be worn over and over again.

Quality Materials

Tangerine Dream Soft Wool Crocheted Bodice is crafted using carefully chosen materials from my existing collection of yarns to ensure both comfort and durability. The wool yarn used in its production is sourced from sustainable and cruelty-free sources, further emphasizing my commitment to ethical fashion.

Sustainable Practices

I have been collecting yarn for many decades with the intention of making beautiful things for people to wear but like most of us with busy lives I did not actually find the time to indulge in this love of making. I have arrived at time in my life when I can no longer wait to do the thing I love. So I buy no new yarn as I am committed to using what I have collected over the years. I am committed to making sure that no yarn ever leaves this home and goes to landfill.

By choosing this item, you are not only helping to make my dream a reality but also making an environmentally conscious fashion choice.
