SOCIAL IMPACT

83

/ 100

Having 100% of their production in Europe strongly increases chances to have a product made in fair conditions.

Additional information

We make sure that our knitters earn enough to provide themselves and their families with the basics of a decent life — be it a warm meal on their dinner table, school supplies for their kids, medical care, clothing, paying electricity bills or housing. While we wish we could increase our knitters' salaries beyond just a fair wage, the reality of operating a small independent label with design, marketing and premium material costs does not necessarily allow us to do so.

We wanted to create a platform that gave our knitters a realistic shot at achieving their bigger, wilder dreams. Now with each purchase, you can choose to donate €10 directly towards a dream of a woman who made your knit.

ABOUT

We make cute knits that are pretty damn sustainable. Inspired by old-school local crafts, we focus on Northern aesthetics, natural materials and ethical manufacturing. Each piece is meant to last a lifetime.

We employ craftswomen, mostly stay-at-home moms, around Lithuania.
The majority of them live in villages and small towns where jobs are extremely scarce. We ensure that they earn fair wages and are able to provide for themselves and their beautiful families.
