Crochet! Magazine acknowledged Laurel Hill as an innovative, environmentally friendly, and socially responsible company in its July 2009 edition.
The article focused on Laurel Hill’s crochet hooks and needles, which are crafted from Nam Oc, Trai and ebony woods. Each wood is carefully hand selected, sized, sanded and polished to create premium needlework tools.
According to the article, Members of the Crochet Guild of America provided the early tests of Laurel Hill’s crochet hooks at trade events, which gave valuable feedback and suggestions. For example, their suggestions led to the creation of the unique thumb rest that sets Laurel Hill’s crochet hooks apart from other brands.
