Wilalegre: she´s doing hats, it makes her happy!

I met Claudia in Fuerteventura, she's making knitted hats and accessorizes, me and my sister bought hairbands, they are really great, handcrafted and really good-looking!

Corralejo is going crazy for her hats! Everyone seems to have one!

The story of the name is pretty funny:
"Wil" comes from Wilson. 
"Wilson is a nickname of me and comes from the movie wilson is a nickname of me and comes from the movie “Castaway” with Tom Hanks. if you have seen the film and you have been backpacking before, then you certainly know the feeling of returning to a big city after a while on a lonely island."
and "alegre"means happy. so it became Wilalegre!

About her:
"I am claudia and i love to travel. i grew up on a farm in Switzerland and right now i am living in Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands. to relax, to lose the feeling of time and to have no worries i started with knitting. this makes me happy."
