PREORDER: The Khina beanie
- Designed and hand knitted by Khina (the grandmother to Nelom)
- 60% cotton 40% alpaca
- Using the skills they learned growing up, Bhutanese knitters in the Akron, Ohio area are creating beautiful hand knitted hats and other items. Their creations, which interlace strands of yarn to create hand knitted design, are a metaphor for how their lives are being brought together in a new culture. Once forced from their homes to live in a refugee camp, they were exploited, frightened and had no hope. Now they are thriving! We no longer call them refugees. This is a label that was forced on them. It is a part of their heroic story but we celebrate hope and freedom now.
* This item is available for preorder and has an estimated ship date of 10/23
