The name ‘Crochet’ comes from the French word ‘Crochet’, meaning small hook. In India it is right to say that with the arrival of the first batch of Nuns and Missionaries from Portugal, the craft found roots and made its way in almost every house in Goa. Crochet has a traditional market in Goa since ages. At the time of marriage, a few pieces of embroidered linen and crochet are given to the bride as a part of dowry. It is customary for the brides here to bring these items at the time of marriage.

Every person who crochets has a story… a story that is unique & special.
Crochet is so lovingly associated with our sweetest Grandmothers that we want to keep it alive with the same love. Crochet has been a very enjoyable hobby for the Designer & Founder of Dhinakarana, Mrs.Mercy Rangarao ... since her childhood. She learnt crochet at the age of 5 from her grandmother & mom. During the initial stages of learning, she was exceptionally talented in the basic stitches of crochet like chain, slip-stitches, single crochet, double crochet & picots and practiced crochet all the time. She was even able to teach her friends who were curious. She always wanted to achieve something special in crochet out of her own skill & determination. As time passed by and her children grew up her, she has a vast stretch of CROCHET TIME! Seeing all the colors of yarns she envisions products, designing them & finally finishing them to perfection gives her loads of satisfaction & joy… She loves to generously gift her friends & relatives with her creations and says “My joy doubles when I share “.
To make the products one just requires a simple hook and threads. There is no limit to the materials that can be used to crochet. Crocheted fabric is begun by placing a slip-knot loop on the hook (though other methods such as a magic ring or simple folding over of the yarn may be used), pulling another loop through the first loop, and repeating this process to create a chain of a suitable length.
With an encouraging husband & children she has established a brand from her passion now.
Dhinakaran's Arts and Crafts attained tremendous success, love & response from All over India & overseas as well... as her Crochet journey continues.....
