The Toockies by Lavinia Story:

“All Toockies products are Fairtrade certified. When we purchase the cotton yarn from the mill in India, we receive a certificate with a Control Union stamp, the cotton is GOTS certified. Fairtrade. The women who participate in this project are taught how to knit at a local community center, where a bathroom has been built just for them. The knitters take home a little roll of yarn, and once a week they drop off finished products, where a quality check is facilitated. There is a doctor present who are giving the knitters and their children a free health check-up. By purchasing these products you are supporting these women by giving them a chance to have dreams that they would otherwise not have. Handmade in India by women in a fairtrade project, managed by a local NGO called “Promise Charitable Trust”
