Fashion icon Coco Chanel once said that in order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different. This is the mantra in the fashion industry which many stylish creatives keep in mind when getting ready to rock any runway. Handmade designs are the easiest way to add a sense of uniqueness, which is necessary for standing out. Jamaica-based line of handmade crochet apparel, Pineapple Stitch, prides itself on producing custom apparel for all sizes. Their apparel include swimwear, outerwear, accessories and everyday bags.

Owner Nickaley Brown came up with the idea to start Pineapple Stitch in 2017 after learning traditional tips and tricks from her grandmother. “She was the one who taught me how to crochet, but I started to venture out from doilies and blankets,” said Brown. After several trials, the world of crochet took flight and her love for creating custom apparel soared. “I was amazed at the things that could be done with just a hook and yarn,” she explained.

For Brown, confidence and comfort are major factors to consider when wearing clothes. “I want people to feel like they can do anything in Pineapple Stitch. When something fits you right, and makes you a look a certain way, it really does affect your mood and how you perceive things,” said Brown.

With a classy pair of crochet pom pom earrings or even a monokini, women wearing Pineapple Stitch should feel sexy and confident about their bodies. The custom apparel line is also caters to men with stylish tams, scarves and other accessories.
