The circumstances that life presents sometimes turn out to be the best teacher you can ever have. Who would've thought that two friends love for crochet will lead to great relationships with talented moms across Europe and North America. The concept of Shopping Rite began out of a hobby to showcase handmade crochet works for the public to appreciate and connect with. It took long hours and extensive research for two friends Mortada Lilo and David Dean to come up with ideas and position crochet products with the right audience.
This dedication made them appreciate the craftsmanship that was required to perfect an art work. They would go on to meet moms across North America and Europe who create handmade items especially crochet pieces full time. The purpose of these meetings were to understand the reasons why these moms created art pieces beyond an income. Some of the reasons baffled them; For some, it was a means of escape from abusive relationships, express themselves and for others it provided comfort after the death of their spouses.
They felt the passion from these moms and partnered up with them to create this platform. Your purchase of each item supports these moms and encourages them to continue what they love doing.
