Quaint Kitsch

Crochet moves from stale pastime to opportunity to express individuality

Implications - Previously seen as a hobby for the agoraphobic, the art of crochet is being revamped as an easy means to express individuality. As the DIY wave picks up the pace, more methods of easy creation and customization are becoming popular. In an age where individuality reigns supreme, consumers respond well to the opportunity to express themselves.
