Krochet Kids

Kohl, Travis and Stewart began crocheting their own winter hats when they were awkwardly awesome high-schoolers in Spokane, WA.  They even sold some of their creations and were  known locally as the Krochet Kids.

Fast-forward a decade or so and these boys are running a non-profit that employs women in northern Uganda.  The goal? Sustainable employment that unravels the charity-dependence that has stifled development in that region for a generation.  The products?  Simple and stylish crocheted hats, handmade by one of more than 80 talented ladies.
