Crochet from the country
About the entrepreneur
Entrepreneurship is second nature to Riannah, as both her parents and some of her older siblings are currently or have been business owners as well.
”My mom taught me to crochet when I was 6. I would make things for myself and my friends but I never thought about selling anything.
One day last November, my mom posted a picture of me wearing a scarf and hat I made for myself and people started asking where we got them.
Since that day, my mom and I have filled over 150 orders.”
Handmade Hugz was founded by Riannah and her mother Rosita Haynes.
Together, the dynamic duo create beautifully handcrafted accessories such as sweater caps, scarves, spring shade hats, bags, and more!
