Hey y'all! I'm Ericka, the artist and owner of Dope Crochet. My business began with a desire to create one of a kind accessories for myself. I love creating pieces that no one else has seen before. Really, who doesn't want to stand out in a crowd?!
Crochet is my therapy. I have the most fun freestyling with unique materials to create something awesome and unexpected. Very much like the course of my life.
Born and raised on a small farm in Austin, I left to attend college in Boston, where I double majored in Linguistics and Japanese! After living in Japan, Boston, and NYC, I decided to return home and start the next chapter of my life with family nearby. Being surrounded by family in my hometown, I decided to turn passion into profession and launched Dope Crochet. Soon after, I met the love of my life, gave birth to my mini-me and is my muse! She inspires me daily and I especially love designing for her!
Dope Crochet designs are contemporary, unique and unlike anything else in the world of fiber accessories. All creations are my original designs and are handmade with quality and love right here in Austin, TX.
My success is due to all of your love and support - I cannot thank you all enough. If you have any questions or comments for me, I'd love to hear them! I respond to every email so please feel free to reach out anytime. Thanks for reading!
