WELCOME TO BAMBOO!
Hi, my name is Cristina, and I live in a small Portuguese seaside town.
As a young kid, I cross-stitched frames for my nephews and nieces, knitted sweaters… but then entered adolescence! Many years later, I decided to learn how to crochet and got completed hooked on! I love everything about stitches, types of yarns and their colours … I spend hours visiting shop such as Brancal or Lopo Xavier.
I started by making blankets (some of which I haven’t finished; shame on me!), sweaters, baskets, until.. I can’t even remember why… Perhaps because I simply love baby feet… I tried to make some crochet shoes. I admit to have them done and undone a million times, because the results didn’t please me. But when I made a Bamboo pair, I loved it. and I loved them even more when I got to try them on some tiny feet! I shared them with friends, and friends of friends, and everyone, being sincere or simply friendly, approved my Bamboo. After receiving some encouraging first orders, I developed the Bamboo concept and website. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
