Copper and Thread Crochet Accessorise

Makeda started out crocheting while still pursuing a degree in law at the University of the West Indies. She has since had to postpone her studies due to a financial deficit. Crocheting has provided her with both a creative outlet and remuneration.

Currently the site offers a range of wearable fashion pieces and accessories catering predominantly to the female populace zoning in on aquaphiles.

Since January  2019 there has been the implementation of a ban on single use plastics, this is of particular interest to our founder as while she was  at the faculty she developed a keen interest in environmental preservation.

We have since started offering environmentally friendly alternatives to shopping bags, as we believe it is important to play our part in preserving the planet. Though, currently, we solely provide yarn alternatives, with proper funding we would be able to make this necessary transition more attractive by offering straw- based raffia and jute twine alternatives not only for shopping bags but as everyday accessories.

We also hope to expand operations to cater to the male populace offering evening wear accessories and summer paraphernalia. To do this we would further employ  young ladies from volatile communities through partnership with the local NGO- the Forward Step Foundation. It is our hope that through teaching the invaluable skill of crochet and by providing an attractive form of remuneration we may positively engage the communities at large.

Based in Jamaica we offer women’s swimwear for a range of tastes.
