Our products are uniquely hand crafted in Nepal by way of traditional knitting techniques in a fair trade environment. Every Knitwits Originals hat is loomed and finished with care using naturally dyed Azo free New Zealand wool. Wherever possible we use recycled materials for linings and embellishments to make our products as earth-friendly as possible.
We are passionate about giving back and are thrilled to work with several children’s charities in Nepal where are goods are created. Additionally we are excited about our recent partnership with World Wildlife Fund on our collection of WWF Knitwits. 10% of all sales from this collection are donated back to WWF to help save endangered species all over the world. You can feel good knowing that your participation in our fundraising program is helping to make the world a better place for all. Visit our website for other charitable giving.
