Moonbasket: Lighting + More!

Oh, oh, oh! This is hot. Moonbasket in South Africa has some mind blowing crochet designs on their website like crochet pendant lamps, cuff bracelets, stools, and votive candles made out of cotton string and jute twine. Cape Town designer and artist Dani Le Roy launched Moonbasket and works alongside business partner Laura Summs to design and make pendants and other home accessories out of mostly natural materials. Stunning!

So tactile, and very grandma's house gets a mega modern makeover! And you know what I learned about crochet today that I never once thought about? This.

"Crochet is one of the few crafts that cannot be replicated by machine. The unique quality of each handmade item produced becomes the most essential part of its luxury."

Is that not the coolest factoid ever? I think yes. I mean, it's like crochet is untouchable, it's the ultimate handmade product. I really like the simple, modern styles of Moonbasket. What do you think?
