Krochet Kids International

W inter 2009


Who We Are: Krochet Kids International is a youthful movement fighting poverty by producing and selling distinctive, life changing products.

Our products are hand crocheted in Northern Uganda by a group of war-affected women, many of them experiencing empowerment for the first time. Through connecting our friends in Uganda with our friends in the surf, skate and snow industry, we are able to establish a community of LOVE that bridges generation, race, borders, and wealth. The sale of our hats provide sustainable livelihoods for our crocheters while at the same time generating profit that is used to empower the next generation of Ugandan youth by investing in education and healthcare.

We at Krochet Kids International stand by a quality, unique and stylish product. We offer our hats to socially minded individuals and stores who want to take part in a much larger movement towards social justice and LOVE.


“If you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.� - Mother Teresa. We at Krochet Kids International believe in a new generation of socially and globally minded youth. We believe that when given the opportunity to style themselves, there is a motivation not only for the product but for the hands that make the product. Our hats offer a way for people to take part in something larger than themselves while also expressing their unique ethics of style and comfort. Our hats are designed to be fashion-forward and functional within the skate, surf, and snow industry.
