Kenana Knitters is a grassroots organisation set up to help rural women in Kenya to find some much-needed form of income using their spinning and knitting skills. Established in 1998 and founded on the premise of “changing lives stitch by stitch", KK supports over 300 knitters as well as over 200 spinners who hand-spin the wool into yarn using recycled bicycle wheels made into spinning wheels. Knitting is ideal as it requires minimal equipment and can be done in snatches of times within the context of their daily lives. Each distinctive design is a hand-crafted Kenyan creation and bears the signature of the woman who made it. We love the fact that Kenana Knitters are committed to paying fair wages and to creating high quality, organic products which are environment-friendly.
