Every item is timeless, classic and one-of-a-kind.
Crochet is a centuries old craft of weaving thread into numerous floral and geometrical patterns. Some of the patterns resemble fruits and animals and are interwoven in such a manner that onlookers feel like they are witnessing a magical garden. This craft like all handicrafts is transferred from generation to generation.

The 18-year-old label offers a wide range of styles; it’s lines varying from casual and party wear; to wedding and trousseau items.
