Bambú Jumper

Tiendita piece no. 3 | The Bambú Jumper
This beautiful jumper is a crochet creation by Dora in Mexico City made from a bamboo-wool mix yarn. 
Bamboo’s fibres are naturally silky soft and smooth – which makes the thread incredibly delicate. The wool mix helps hold the soft bamboo fibres together. Bamboo and wool are both natural fibres making this jumper fully biodegradable as well as incredibly soft and silky on the skin.

About Dora

Dora's mother, Julia, has been selling Mexican sweets and trinkets in the streets for many years. Julia is usually sat outside of the church or supermarket in Polanco with Dora. 

Dora would come to the market to accompany her mother, and to pass the time she would crochet beautiful market bags alongside her. Dora actually learned to crochet from Julia.

Dora herself is a mother of 3 and has been struggling through the pandemic. Her crochet work has boosted her monthly income to support her family and we are so happy to have her on the team with us and be able to provide her with a steady flow of crochet.
