**Welcome! I'm Renaissance Austin the Artistic Director, designer, and producer of all that you see here! Creativity, I cannot live without. I love all things beautiful and the visual and performing arts. And most of all I love love...

**************************************************

Raghouse International's mission is to finally put the rest the bad reputation that crochet has had from its birth. In the early years of this art form, crochet was know as a poor man's craft, bulky, ugly to wear, not comparable to knitting, but the past ten years have changed this and revolutionized the craft. Crochet and even knitwear in general have pushed their way to the forefront of the fashion industry and because I am so passionate about texture, I create every piece with texture in mind. I don't see crochet or knit, but feel, mood, and style. I hope you see it too!

**Thanks so much for your time and I look forward to becoming a part of your lifestyle!
