I've been a lover of crocheting with chunky yarns since way back when.
I started with t-shirt yarn but hated the variations in thickness. Check out my original Instagram account i_heart_chunkyyarn which I started in 2015.
Then I discovered braided cotton cords.
In 2018 I became a reseller of a Polish brand in order to get my fix of cotton cords!
After a couple of years I no longer wanted to work with this Polish manufacturer. Unfortunately I was unable to find another manufacturer who was willing to supply, and who had negotiated shipping costs for overseas resellers.
So... in early 2021, at the start of the pandemic, hubby and I decided to produce our own braided cords!
After some ups and a whole lot of downs, MATILDA Braided Cords were released on 5th August, 2021.
We're currently offering 40 colours from our small factory in Melbourne.
