I clearly remember being at a bazaar in Centris. I was looking for a knitted sweater because as a cozy person, I enjoy wearing cozy outfits. Sadly, I didn't get the sweater because it cost at least a thousand pesos, and I didn’t want to spend that much money on a sweater at the time.
When I got home, I thought to myself "what if I just made my own knitted sweater?" So I went to Youtube and watched tutorials, bought my materials, and started learning how to knit and crochet.
Beanies, face scrubbies, and earrings were my first projects. Then a colleague recommended I try selling my items, so I did! I first posted them on Facebook Marketplace and had my first customer. She recommended me to a friend, and that friend recommended me to her friends.
It has always been a dream of mine to make crocheted items popular with everyone and that it’s not just for lolas. Thus, the name Hiraya Collections. Hiraya means “the fruit of one’s hopes, dreams, and aspirations.”

Meet the owner
Hi! I’m Kree, an HR Specialist by profession, but an entrepreneur by passion. I was always a crafty and stationery person ever since high school.
After logging out from work, I'm usually watching vlogs or movies while crocheting projects.
How we give back
I make it a habit to give my 1st fruit of sales as my tithes and offerings. Because I believe that this business was handed to me by God and it’s my duty to give back what I earn.
We also attend to different charities and donation works. During the pandemic, we donated mask holders and crocheted beanies to newborns.
As our business grows, we are looking forward to joining more charity works and donation drives. It is also our dream to conduct our training and teach the youth how to crochet and turn their crafts into a business.
