Why give Handmade Crochet Christmas gifts?
Giving someone special a hand-crafted Christmas gift is so much more meaningful than a mass-produced item.
Handmade crochet gifts are a sure way to show the woman you love that she is loved and is worth wearing something that is completely unique to her alone.
All the garments you'll find listed below are genuine and authentic pieces and represent an investment you make into something that is simply exceptional - made by hand.
The investment is also to support local women-led businesses. It is important to know that all Mums Handmade clothing are made by women in Greece.
Did you know that crochet items cannot be mass-produced because there are no crochet machines that exist at all? Any crocheted item you buy is a little different than any similar item because it's been 100% handmade.
The fact that nobody in the world has the exact same item really makes the handmade crochet gift truly special, a gift made just for you
Why is handmade better than machine made?
Well, when a garment is handmade, it means that one special artisan, designer or crafter created this one unique piece. Usually, that means that there was more attention to detail and there were no shortcuts taken in the design and implementation of the garment as you would sometimes find in machine-made clothing because these tend to be modified for more efficiency in mass production.
The quality of handmade garments also tends to be better, with higher quality materials (yarns) used in its production, which means the garment will last longer.
Some people would argue that there might be some machinery used in specific parts of the handmade garment process, such as a die machine, for instance. A more appropriate word for garments that have been completely "handmade" from start to finish, would be "hand-crafted".
Handmade garments means there is no machinery or assembly-line involved in the production process, which also means that they would be considered more "Green" or environmentally-friendly than machine-made clothing.
Why is handmade so expensive?
This is a question many people ask, and the answer is very simple: Time, Quality & Skill.
If you think about the amount of time it takes to crochet one garment, if a machine were able to make the same piece (which it can't), it could have made many more in the same amount of time.
Handmade items are usually made by qualified artisans or designers who care about their work and choose the best quality fabrics (yarn) to create them. This means that you can wear the garment much longer than a cheap mass-produced item.
Also, being able to crochet well and come up with creative designs is a skill that has to be learned, practiced and perfected. So the money one pays for an original hand-crafted garment would be similar to paying for an original painting as opposed to a poster-replica of one (which could be compared to machine-made clothing in this analogy).
