These crochet pebbles caught my attention and I asked the size of the needle. "Eighty", the lady said. It takes a day to make one and each one is adapted to the size of the pebble.
Then I saw these knitted towels with crochet borders. They're made of hemp and dry quickly after use. They're thin but very sustainable - according to the lady they last decades.
Also very pretty were these starched stars. You can hang them against a window to see the light fall through or you can sew them on a dress, purse or pillow as decoration.
Photos on the website show how delicate this work is. Ribisli's aim is to help female needlework regain its old-time social recognition and a fresh place in our modern living. I'm impressed.
