What is Vintage Crochet?

Knitting is a craft where two straight needles are used to manipulate yarn or thread to create loops resulting in a textile or functional object (like an article of clothing).  Crochet uses a single, hooked needle for drawing a yarn or thread through intertwined loops to create a textile or functional object.  Most knitting/crochet is done in yarn while crocheting in cotton thread is often referred to as vintage crochet.  Cotton thread is used to crochet doilies and mandalas, crochet jewelry, and filet crochet art. 

More experienced artisans use cotton thread to make large projects such as tablecloths and detailed blankets.  Mamba, our founding artisan, is known for creating intricate tablecloths, delicate doll dresses and most recently, a handmade prom dress.
