Kenana Knitters is dedicated to supporting the local community by by empowering over 500 rural Kenyan women to knit a brighter future for themselves and their families. Currently, Kenana 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 within the local community 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 are committed to paying fair wages and to creating high quality, organic products which are environmentally friendly. We use both AZO free dyes and natural plant dyes from plants grown in the area which add vibrant and colourful depth to designs.
