Anne-Claire Petit is an eponymous brand based in the Netherlands. Anne-Claire herself trained as an industrial designer, and them moved into textile design. Most of the Anne-Claire Petit range is hand-crocheted by women in villages in the countryside of northern China. In this part of the country, women have passed on their handwork traditions for many generations and crocheting is part of their cultural and craft heritage. Over the last decade more and more women have started to work for Anne-Claire and a warm bond has developed. Each item is unique as it is 100% handmade. A 30 cm long dachshund for example takes about 3 days of work. The organic cotton is dyed according to the specific ACP colour schemes to ensure the desired intensity. The women, about two hundred, work at home often with their neighbours. They determine their own schedule so, when kids come home from school or harvests need to be taken care of, the crochet is put aside.
