Is it really handknitted?
How can you tell if a jumper is hand knitted ? Once you have it on it’s obvious. It feels different. It’s like being hugged by someone you love. But when you’re at the shop or buying online, what should you look for?
- Because you’re worth it
The first thing you need to look at is the price. A handknitted item will never be cheap. That’s because you’re paying for the hours of love and care the makers put into it. If it's cheap, it’s mass produced.
Some brands will invest in advertising so they come up when you search for handknitted jumpers. They might be expensive, unique, and exclusive and still be made by machine. They will be shouting it from the rooftops if it’s really a handknitted jumper. If you get to their site and all the claims disappear, so should you.
Proof of life
If your handknitted jumper passes all these tests, congratulations. You have a piece you will wear forever, and that will make you feel special every time you wear it. If you bought it from us it will also support a woman in rural Southern India to transform her life.
