Introducing The Two of Us: A blend of crochet and creativity

Handmade in Cape Town, The Two of Us is the brainchild of Jess and Steph, two talented individuals who share a deep passion for crochet and who brought their creative visions to life to create something truly special.

With their enchanting crochet apparel and homeware, The Two of Us invites you to embark on a delightful journey of style and comfort.

From cosy sweaters to charming home decor, their pieces showcase the artistry and dedication poured into each handmade creation.

The story of The Two of Us began as what seemed like a far-fetched dream at first, but soon transformed into a tangible goal as Jess and Steph realised they could turn their shared passion for crochet into a thriving business. Fuelled by their deepening love for the art of crochet, they became a team, working side by side to make their dream a reality.

For Jess, crochet started as a lockdown hobby in 2019 and quickly grew into a lifelong passion. After teaching Steph how to crochet during a sunny beach day, they both knew they had discovered something truly special. With the support of their friends and family, they dreamt of creating unique crochet pieces for others to enjoy.

The Two of Us recently launched their very first collection, aptly named ‘Something Blue.’ This collection showcases their creativity and the timeless beauty of crochet.
