Amoami Workshops

Amoami in community

We organize workshops with our team of crocheters.  It is during these magical moments when one of the main objectives of Amoami takes place, the creation of a community and sense of belonging.

Each crafter is supplied with the materials and equipment to crochet both at home and at the workshops. 

Our Amoami bear is made of locally-sourced and sustainable materials: 100% fine quality cotton, hypoallergenic stuffing, and it comes wrapped in a biodegradable, reusable jute bag. All is sourced locally in Europe. 

Crocheting is a form of art therapy. We consider crochet a tool that helps fight Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression. It also improves concentration skills, self-esteem and reduces muscle tension. 

Furthermore, knitting and crocheting opens up the opportunity to give meaningful gifts to others allow to immerse yourself in a beautiful craft.

In this sense, the fact that each bear represents the resistance of these brave women brings a unique value to what they create with their hands. The very act of pulling yarn and chain stitching with these simple tools have the ability to inspire, bring happiness, drive away depression and create challenges. 

Amoami provides them with a moment when all their circumstances vanish. It’s just them, the hook and the yarn.
