A Love Story of Giving
In March 2021, we met our young crochet artisan, Iluh, 20 years old, who's so proud that she'd been crocheting with her mom since she was 7 years old. She's beyond excited for her creations to go global for the first time. What's inspiring about Iluh's passion is her simple 'why' - crocheting makes her happy, period.
