All of the hoods at Gallets are crocheted. Crochet is a chain-stitch embroidery accomplished by using a needle hook to stitch fibre yarns to produce the texture of looped and interlinked chains of thread. With over 150 different stitching methods, Crocheting is a craftmanship that originates from Europe in the 1800s and is still widely appreciated to this day. At Gallets, only natural-made yarns such as cotton and wool are being used to stitch into a Hood - this is to avoid further damage to the environment.
Gallets offer winter headwear accessories made for everyone, as well as a customisable bead set. All of Gallets hoods are sustainably produced. Gallets offers a range of hoods that are locally handmade and are made of high-quality natural fibers. Gallets aim to produce garments that would be less harmful to the environment. All resources are responsibly outsourced and manufactured locally. Furthermore, Gallets aims to have crochet craftmanship to be consistently appreciated. Gallet aims to emphasise that comfort is made for everyone. With the recent uproar of the balaclava trends, many find the excitement in wearing full-headed headwear during fashion weeks. Despite the hype, many failed to realise that many women across the world are getting criticised and badly treated for simply wearing them for religious purposes. Therefore, Gallets aim to produce comfortable garments made for everyone as everyone deserves comfort.
