Today’s Fashion for Good Friday feature is on an amazing company that is truly, TRULY unique in both their mission and their products: Krochet Kids, International.
Krochet Kids was founded by three friends who loved to travel, do snow sports, and surf… and they also happened to learn how to crochet. Long story short, they started crocheting and making unique headwear to wear up on the mountain. One summer, Stewart (one of the founders) spent time in Uganda and eventually, they all saw an opportunity. They saw an opportunity to help those in Uganda who needed a way to rise above poverty, rise above their situations, and be able to provide for their families.
So, the founders traveled to Northern Uganda and began to empower and teach the women there in the small communities how to crochet. They’ve continued to grow and Krochet Kids is doing amazing things in these rural communities. They’ve even expanded to Peru!
Krochet Kids is also different in that they are a non-profit organization. Why a non-profit? As a non-profit, they are able to focus more resources and financial investment into their program initiatives and the activities that achieve empowerment. This allows them to create a lasting impact by focusing on the people.
Check out this powerful video that gives more insight and history into the heart, soul, and mission of Krochet Kids:
Krochet Kids sells apparel for men and women and headwear and accessories for the kiddos. Check out a few of my favorites (modeled by my handsome and sweet boy, Amos!):
One of my favorite things is that each piece is hand-signed by the artisan who made it! How awesome is that? Makes it so personal!
And for the ladies… I have BOTH of these tees and I absolutely LOVE them. They’re so soft and comfortable and they go with everything!
What do you think? Have you heard of Krochet Kids? Check them out!
*This is not a sponsored post. Krochet Kids kindly gifted me the beanies and booties for Amos and the women’s tees, however I was not obligated to write this post. I have been a fan of Krochet Kids for awhile and love their mission and purpose! I thought they were a perfect fit to share with y’all on an edition of Fashion for Good Friday!
