Why the name “Kuroosh”?

“Kuroosh” is a Nepali term for “crochet hook”. It was the art of crocheting, interlocking loops and creating a wonderful piece, that led me in choosing Kuroosh as the name of my company.

Crochet has a significant place in my life. My mom introduced the term Kuroosh when I was just a kid. She was an avid crocheter and a knitter. But a day came when she had to stop continuing her passion. After that, Kuroosh was lost among us. No one among her five kids had any serious interest in it.

One afternoon four years ago, I just felt the need to learn that skill from her. Maybe I could continue her passion through me. So, I asked her to teach me. It was an emotional request for her which she happily accepted. When that day ended, my hands were familiar with the coordination between yarn and hook. A happy and proud moment for both of us. But how serious I was regarding crochet was visible only after I came to the Netherlands a month after that crochet session. It has been four years now that I have been crocheting. It has become an integral part of my new life here.

Kuroosh thus connects me with my mom, my country and at the same time with my new life in Eindhoven. It weaves these lives together in a colorful productive way.
