Kenana knitters

Changing lives stitch by stitch

 

 

Kenana Knitters was founded on the premise of changing lives stitch by stitch. Kenana Knitters hopes to share the stories of rural Kenyan women through their handiwork of unique, hand-knitted creations.

 

Kenana Knitters is a grassroots business that was founded by local Kenyan, Patricia Nightingale, who wanted to assist a group of individuals, as they were lacking a market for their homespun yarn. With clever consideration, she helped transform their yarn into unique creations with her distinctive designs, including plush toys, home décor, clothing and accessories. With a vision to further impact the community, the group taught women in the area to knit beautiful, organic products using local, sustainable resources. By providing a safe, family-friendly working environment, Kenana Knitters empowers women, offering them a chance to work and take charge of their lives, with dignity.

 

All items are organic and hand-knitted. Products include wool and cotton plush toys, Home Decor including blankets, throws, pillows and rugs, clothing & accessories.

 

Today, Kenana Knitter works with and pays fair wages to over 500 knitters and spinners. The organization exports a collection of unique products to more than 10 countries around the world.
