Crochet Works

Crocheting is an ancient technique. The American scholar Mary Thomas attributes its genesis to the Arabian Peninsula, from which it then gradually spread across the East. However, a legend tells that a lady in Bavaria, skilled in handicrafts, became fascinated by the sight of snowflakes falling on her windowsill and tried to reproduce them with cotton thread and a large curved needle. Thus crocheting was born. Today, with industrialization, only few people are skilled at handwork. Nevertheless, there remain people who value embroidery, a craft that was once primarily associated with housewives meticulously embellishing their wedding trousseaus before their marriage.
