Loopy Mango is the brainchild of Oejong and Anna, two friends who met in New York. One day Oejong randomly found a crochet hook in her suitcase. She crocheted day and night; so much that she quit her job! Anna was so amazed by Oejong's creations that she wanted to share them with the entire world! Loopy Mango believes that anyone can be creative - all you have to do is give it a try.
LOOPY MANGO is a knitwear and DIY brand that was founded in New York City in 2004. With beginner friendly DIY (Do It Yourself) Kits anyone can make luxury accessories and home decor items in a matter of a few hours and sometimes even minutes.
