Fashion can create social change. Krochet Kids Intl. is empowering women in northern Uganda and Peru to help break the cycle of poverty and create lasting change for generations through new assets, skills and knowledge.
Long-lasting sustainable change is created through three things: jobs, education and empowerment. Krochet Kids is providing jobs to create headwear, bags, apparel and accessories. Their artisans are educated so that they develop beyond the need for outside aid. Mentorship is provided to each woman to help them plan a sustainable career path for the future. Today, over 150 people in Uganda and Peru are working, receiving education, and being mentored toward a brighter future in creating products that give back.
I was given the opportunity to review a few pieces from KK intl: the pocket crew sweater, tiled muscle tank and the Twiggy. Each piece was carefully crafted by women who hand-sign the finished product. You can then learn about the woman who made your piece and see how you are directly impacting her and her family.
Tiled Muscle Tank – $32
This super-soft muscle tank with a split back comes in black or white, 100% cotton and made ethically in Peru. This tank has become one of my favorites and is perfect for working out or in an outfit. This would be a good layering piece in the fall too- layer under a plaid shirt!
Pocket Crew Sweatshirt – $54
This sweatshirt is the softest I own and it’s fitted specifically for women. I recommend getting a bigger size for an extra-comfy staple in the fall and winter!
The Twiggy – $32
The first time I wore “the Twiggy” out, I received complimtents. Stripes are in! This is a classic piece and one of my go-to shirts for everyday wear. Check it out on my Instagram!
