My name is Sylwia and I have always been fascinated by craft and handmade arts. My first work was a little sweater made for my baby girl, not perfect but I am very proud of it. Crocheting helped me to survived expecting time for the little one. That’s how I have started.
First crochet bag costed me a few days, couple of different yarns, few patterns, a number of broken crochet hooks :D and a lot of work but finally here it is. I’ve got my own unique and very special bag. I’m far from using a word “designed” but I've made Bilibag myself step by step. I was ripping out and crocheting again and again until I achieved an ideal one. That makes it very special to me.
Surprisingly I was asked to sell the same bag to one of my colleague, then another one… and another. That’s how this shop idea came through. I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands and created an online shop Bilibag Factory.
Bilibag Factory is not a real big factory employing hundreds of people. It’s not a professional designer atelier. It’s a small workshop, made by my lovely husband at our place in England, where I can focus on my work and where I can fine-tune and think through every detail myself.
Accessories are to make us unique, complete the look and emphasize our individuality. It does matter if it’s something basic and common or one of a kind. If you need something personalized - inspire me. Beautiful things can be created through our cooperation and ideas. I love to hear from you.
Fascinated by cotton cord and possibilities it offers, together with my husband, we started to produce our own cord. As you can probably imagine, that it is quite technical thing to deal with, so this part of a business wouldn't exist without Przemek. He is also contact point for all cotton cord enquiries.
We make our cord of regenerated yarn and polyester core inside. It's not waterproof but it is durable and perfectly shapes baskets and bags. Can be used to crochet rugs, coasters, knitting poufs and covers. We have 5mm braided cord in our offer, which is also good for some macramé projects.
In the meantime, several patterns and DIY KITS were created, thanks to which a small but wonderful group of crocheters, gathered here. We believe we can all grow our businesses together ❤
