The story about Grey Winter Jumper
This is the view from Dasha’s second office back in Slovakia where she likes to escape and be creative.
After drawing, planning and choosing the fabric it is time for pattern making.
Looking for the fabric
For this design the super soft fleece would be idea. Something that does not need to be dry-cleaned or ironed but is kind to babies/kids skin. Back to London in Shepherds Bush there is one street full of fabric shops. • Great to see funky fashion students and designers pottering around looking for suitable fabrics for their projects. • Fabric House is owned by Rashid who is always very helpful and knowledgeable since he has been in the business for all of his life
How about having some fun and making a jumper with a little toy attached? Very fortunate to have local ladies back in Slovakia who are pensioners and have the time and love to crochet. We make them feel useful and pay them fair wages. These ladies even make their own designs that we might like to use.
Say hello to Pepo, Vroom and Chicka Hand made, crocheted with Love to became your friends :)
So now you know how our new winter jacket was born. I hope you, or your children, enjoy wearing it as much as we enjoy making it. Everything in life has a story behind it. We hope you like our story.
