About Me

Hello! My name's Silke, and I'm the owner and designer behind the handmade decorations line Crochet on a tree. Everything in my shop is designed with care in my colorful little studio in Carpi, Italy.
When I was expecting my daughter I decided to learn to crochet and to decorate her nursery with my own handmade creations. Who would have thought that I'd loved so much doing this! I slowly ended up transforming her room in a dreamy forest full of cute little animals.
To create all my items I always choose the best quality yarn, mostly 100% cotton yarn because it has the most vibrant and bright colors, and it makes my pieces easy to wash and durable ( which is very important when it comes to baby items and toddler toys ).

I pay special attention to the fine detail of each piece. I always try to make my animals as realistic as I can, I love it when they seem to come to life!

Since I was a young girl I've always been creative. My drawings and crafts were always  inspired by nature, and now that I have a daughter I think that it's very important to pass on to her the love and respect for nature.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope that you and your babies will enjoy my decorations!
