My purpose and mission is to be different. Think outside of the box. Celebrate it with me. Everyday I feel motivated to think and create new things. It's the only thing I've ever been good at as a trade. Growing up I never saw myself working a traditional secular career. For the first time in my life, the idea of making and selling my own handmade goods opened a door for me. I can't imagine doing anything else! My twisted designs set me apart from the rest. It just so happened to be hats. It's evolved to twisted infinity scarves. I bought my first mannequin head. The rest is history. If you would like to look up the mobius strip, look it up here. http://bit.ly/2kUMhN9

Every designer has their own style of making things. My style is starting my designs with a twist literally. Everyday I feel fortunate that I do not have to punch in a clock. I've been selling on Etsy for 10 years now. In the next few months I would like to create other accessories besides hats and scarves. I also want to record more videos for my crochet and knit patterns.

Quality craftsmanship goes into every piece.

How often do you wear a hat? Often? Semi often? Occasionally? Where do you wear it? Outdoors? To church? Weddings? Occasions that require a more polished look? Convert it to casual if you like. These uniquely designed hats are practical and artistic. They are available in different colors and sizes. Choose which one/s you like.

Turnaround time is 1-2 weeks for Hemp Hats. Every physical item besides hemp hats has a turnaround time of 3-5 business days.

Strawberry Couture is about having fun with a crochet hook and knitting needles. Original designs by Lenore Berry-Zaragosa. This is your source for unique handmade crochet and knit hats, and scarves for women.

If you don't mind, add strawberrycouture as your favorites shop. If you are using the windows or mac platform, click to see shop updates in the left side of your screen. If you are using the iPhone, iPad, android Etsy mobile app, they will show in your feed.

About

About Our Life Story by StrawberryCouture

I am like nothing else in the world. I'm full of imagination and education. I get excited over new thoughts and want to understand them. I like learning new things and making reason of them.

Before strawberrycouture, our life story began when my husband and I met in the Army. I served 5 years as an Army cook. I served one overseas hardship tour in Korea and worked 14 hour workdays 12 days straight.

Fernando aka Freddy, my hero husband served 15 years as an Army support truck driver. He delivered supplies to war zones. He served in 2 wars: Operation Desert Storm and Operation Restore Hope in Somalia. The movie Black Hawk Down recreates this. He served in the 10 Mountain Division.

Today we stay at home while I maintain this business. We get a kick out of the chance to do simple things together.

I stay at home with my husband, and I mean hero in all sense of the word. He suffers from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). PTSD, a severe anxiety disorder, develops after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma. This is common to combat veterans. He served 2 combat tours of Desert Storm and Somalia. He cannot be alone for more than a long period. Thus the VA (Department of Veteran's Affairs) recommended he stay at home.

I encourage individuals to consider unheard of options as I do. I need individuals to see the world and think as I do. Magnificence exists to making your own particular form of a typical thing.

My hats and scarves have a gigantic impact from numerical shapes. I need to do what nobody else has done. I need to crochet and knit everything from a basic ruffle infinity scarf to hat designs.

I do everything myself. I take orders, work the PC, outline the designs, crochet them, and ship them. My better half Fernando drives me to the post office so I can send my requests. Regardless of what time, he takes me there. I show him the PC every so often. I work alone and I appreciate making companions all around the globe.

  • My Crochet Studio

    Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, Networking

    Welcome to my crochet studio. This is where I make all my handmade orders from you. My husband and I live in a one bedroom apartment. I crochet next to the daylight and have natural lights where I can see all my yarn and colors accurately.

    Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, Photography, Shipping, Computer, Networking

    I am a five year Army veteran cook. I do almost everything in this shop. I learned to crochet when I was little. My grandmother crocheted night and day and always had to make something after learning who was getting married or having a baby.
