me and my mom

“It all began almost ten years ago, when concerts and festivals became my favorite pastime. Marketplaces where handmade products were sold, mainly dream catchers, were common there. I fell in love with these decorations, found them interesting and fun. I really wanted to have a dream catcher in my bedroom to give it a bohemian vibe.
My mother always surprised me with her creativity and talent for handicrafts. She is versatile: she sews, paints, crochets, she can literally create something out of nothing! So I told her about this mystical dream catcher: a wooden or metal hoop, a filling with a fancy pattern, and the beautiful decorations that makes the dream catcher so special – strings, lace, beads, feathers… She liked the idea so much that she immediately started to work. She came up with a crocheted filling. And she was right! When the hoop was ready, I decorated the dream catcher with the materials we already had at home. It decorated my bedroom. Our guests liked it a lot, they also wanted their own dream catcher. We gave it as a gift to family and friends, which always turned out to be a great gift.
Now we continue our work, it’s something that connects us, despite such a huge distance – a common hobby that makes us stay together all the time. Even though I live in London now”.

what yarns do we use?

We try to choose natural, recyclable yarns. Strings from Polish manufacturers, most of them are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified. If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless in human ecological terms (find more here). The strings we choose have the most natural composition possible (from 80% to 100% cotton) and lace ribbons (produced in United Kingdom) always 100% cotton.
