AshandKay are sisters who wish to share their creativity through genuine handmade crochet inspired pieces. The majority of the materials are sourced locally and the items are handmade right here in Australia. The ultimate goal is to use high quality and durable materials as well as creating them at the most affordable prices in order to keep each piece unique. Create modern design, with the traditional art of crochet, allied with new techniques and some recycled materials.
Some of AshandKay's designs include crochet floor rugs, baskets, blankets, ottoman poufs, cushions, stool covers and other crocheted decorative pieces. They are great anywhere in your home whether it be a nursery, bedroom, living room, play room or a special space on its own.
Items can be made to order and be prepared to specific colours/combinations.
Check out their Etsy page which is where the talented ladies sell and connect in one of the world's most vibrant handmade marketplaces.
DESIGNED + MADE IN
Where do you get your inspiration?
"We started designing because we knew we could turn traditional crochet into modern designs by just using vibrant colours and new techniques. Our inspiration initially was having an outlet in which we could express our own creativity. Now it's very much drawn from wanting to inspire others."
What has been your favourite piece and why?
"Our favourite pieces are our handmade crochet floor rugs. We find they make the biggest statement and can really pull a room together. They can also be the most time consuming so through the process we can become quite attached to them."
What is your favourite material to work with?
"We absolutely love using t-shirt yarn, a high quality and recycled cotton material. It is a very sturdy yarn, can be washed in the washing machine easing the daily life of any busy homemaker."
If you were to expand your product range to something entirely different, what would it be?
"We are constantly experimenting with our products in an attempt to expand our range. We do have a few ideas in the making but one area we are not so familiar with and would love to explore further is creating crochet stuffed toys. They would be a perfect addition."
