For our April 2018 box, we teamed back up with a favorite of ours (and yours!) : Krochet Kids! Founded in 2007, Krochet Kids set out with an inspirational and ambitious desire to provide life-altering opportunities for women in impoverished regions of Peru and Uganda while connecting consumers to the makers. Through this partnership, Krochet Kids has identified and empowered some of the most vulnerable women in society, enabling them to drastically improve the quality of life for themselves and generations to come.
Though job-creation is an integral step in the process, Krochet Kids works with their non-profit partner, CAPABLE, to provide services like education, training, mentorship, and financial services to equip all of their employees in every aspect of life.
Apart from employing scores of women, Krochet Kids has also been featured in InStyle Magazine, Entrepreneur.com, VSCO Cam, and Global Citizen Festival. Their products have been worn by commoners and celebrities alike, but most importantly: they are making a difference!
This Scandinavian inspired 'Berlin' scarf is adorned with tassels and the perfect length for bundling up or wearing as a complement to light layers.
Each one is knit by a lady in their program, and complete with their signature. So keep a look out for your scarf to have a tag with their name on it. You can meet the lady that made your item here and leave her a thank you note.
