Art fair Philippines 2014: The Art of Crocheting




According to American crochet expert and world traveler Annie Potter, "the modern art of true crochet as we know it today was developed during the 16th century. It became known as 'crochet lace' in France and 'chain lace' in England."
It says that the crochet originated in Arabia, spread eastward to Tibet and westward to Spain, from where it followed the Arab trade routes to other Mediterranean countries. Another earliest evidence of crochet came from South America, where a primitive tribe was said to have used crochet adornments in rites of puberty. Some have discovered that in China, early examples were known of three-dimensional dolls worked in crochet.
There are a lot of techniques on crocheting, and if you are adventurous enough, you can create something that is beyond your imagination. It is one of the oldest art that is still existing, and I am so proud that somehow I do practice it.
Here are the photos of crochet art from last summer's Art Fair Philippines held at The Link in Makati City. These pieces are created by a Filipino crochet artist.
