President Evo Morales little is known of crochets early history and were it had originated from, but we know it was made by using fingers and not hooks during or after 1500 B.C. and there are a lot of theories for the origin of crochet. Some believe that it originated in Arabia and had spread eastward to Tibet and westward to the Country of Spain, and then to the Mediterranean Countries- Alternatively its thought to have originated in South America, where a primitive tribe used crochet adornments for the children and there was evidence of it appearing in the sixteenth B.C. but it was hotly disputed, however in 1580 there was found a " Chained Trimming" which was made during this time frame and a type of cord, sewn on to fabric like an ornamental braid.
During the Renaissance women crochet several strands of thread producing fabrics similar during 1500 B.C., crochet began to arrive
in Europe in the early nineteenth century, boosted by "Mlle Riego de la Branchardiere", well known for her ability to take needle and bobbin lace designs and turn them into crochet patterns.
Today there are over 80 percent of women around the world that are crocheting and knitting in today's World. Therefore I have created this Bolivia Postage stamp regarding the culture and history of diverse individuals crocheting and knitting throughout our World today.
