moxy crochet: cooperative
Moxy Crochet is a crochet cooperative run by Laura Summs who heads up 7 ladies from Khayelitsha Cape Town.
The seven crocheters craft from home the hundreds of hexagonal pieces which go into each blanket. Working from their homes in Khayelietsha township makes it possible for the crocheters to spend time with their families and keeps shipping costs to a minimum. They meet twice a week to exchange materials for finished pieces and catch up with each other.
Once the motifs are collected the blankets are pieced together by the self taught crocheter and designer Laura Summs, who is totally passionate about handmade things and all kinds of creativity. All aspects of the blankets are done completely by hand and each is one of a kind!
They remind be of this pattern in my Etsy shop!
