Keep Calm and Carry Yaarn

Anne Nuijens and her daughter Hannelore partnered with women artisans…

Fueled by their love of children’s playthings and passion for ethical sourcing and sustainable fair trade, Anne Nuijens and her daughter Hannelore partnered with a manufacturer in India that employs women artisans to build their Belgium-based company Yaarn Handmade.

The women of the Indian-based Godavari Co-Operative Society use the time-honored craft of crocheting to create precious, detail-oriented toys and accessories, with a special emphasis on playful fruit and vegetables. Yaarn Handmade’s items make great gifts and have the beautiful bonus of supporting some of the poorest populations in the world.
