What's not to love about handmade crochet items? They are durable, fashionable and chic, yet rarely do consumers choose handmade products. Instead, they choose mediocre trendy accessories that are basically disposable in today's consumption-fueled economy. Verano Wear is a company that makes specialty crochet handbags, scarves, earrings, necklaces and a whole lot more.
The method of crocheting is to create fabric out of yarn. A person cross stitches the yarn into various sizes to weave a pattern together. Today, this process can be seen in new products such as jewelry, headbands, newborn hats and fingerless mittens. While once a popular hobby, assembly lines have replaced the crochet method leaving handcrafted, fine crochet more and more scarce.
The artisans behind the Verano Wear brand mastered the lost method of crochet over several generations dating back to Rome. The products are priced affordably and are far superior to anything mass produced by a machine which is why I chose to highlight them today. Minimalist living focuses on passing traditions to the next generation and crochet is no exception. When families come together to learn from each other, time is spent and lasting memories are created.
