SOCIAL ENTERPRISE | SOCIAL IMPACT
We are a Not for Profit Social Enterprise supporting four of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Working with local women who've faced socio-economic disadvantages we;
1) Empower women in ending poverty, paying them fairly to handmake each piece. 2) Create better health and well being through mindfulness and community. 3) Strive for gender equality. 4) Create decent work and economic growth.
KNITTING FOR CHANGE
We're a Social Enterprise working with skilled BAMER women in London and Nepal to create change through knitting and social groups, enabling them to improve their circumstances and meeting four of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We form maker collectives, partnering with women’s groups to handcraft the range, prioritising working with those who’ve faced a form of socio-economic disadvantage, providing them with a source of income and utilising their skill sets to self empower with traditional crochet and knitting techniques that stimulate mental health and wellbeing.
So buy a piece, spread the word, make a change
DAY TO DUSK TRANSITIONAL WEAR
(Because no one really wants to wear day glow on their bike/run/walk)
We've created a unisex range of light-reflective, adaptable accessories designed for those who lead busy active lives. Disrupting traditional high-vis wear and ath-leisure, we champion road safety at night, allowing you to transition from day wear to safety wear without second thought.
Our innovative Glow technology lies in the glassfibre yarn which reflects light and as it does, the wearer becomes illuminated, shedding light in the dark so the wearer glows, becoming visible on the road.
ONLY THE BEST
Reuse, Recycle, Repair
We ethically source museling free wool, which means no sheep are harmed to make our wool and since we know you love the planet as much as we do, we ask;
1. Reuse the postage box you received your knitwear in. They make a thoughtful gift box.
2. Recycle your tissue paper, an easy one.
3. Repair your accessories. Send them back to us and we'll happily replace a label or add a stitch or two of wool for absolutely no cost to you. We love visible mending and offer this service to all our customers for free.
4. Only wash as needed
Not only will you save water and detergent, your accessories will last longer, and when you do, handwash to eliminate the energy usage associated with washing machines.
5. Skip the dryer
Flat drying your knitwear accessories for just six months out of the year can eliminate greenhouse gases.
