Encouraging trade, not aid, co-founders Erin Brennan Allan and Mary Wambui source their organic cotton from Uganda, where it is grown and spun then brought to Nairobi, where it is twisted, dyed, and Wambui trains and manages a group of up to 200 knitters.

“I provide a clean and comfortable working environment for my knitters–in most cases bringing the work to them,” said Allan, when asked in e-mail correspondence about the enforcement of fair trade standards. She continued, “They can work as much or as little as they like or are able to; are paid by the piece giving them flexibility to put their families first; and their wages are above the government minimum wages and reflect the cost of living in Nairobi for skilled workers.”
