Welcome to Fair Trade Knitters™!

by Meredith ~ February 6th, 2010. Filed under: Welcome.

We are a fair trade, knit for hire service company. We specialize in production hand knitting.

Are you a designer, yarn store owner or other company in need of hand knitting services? Our cooperative of professional knitters reside in a remote area where the poverty rate is high and job opportunities are scarce. You can learn more about them here. Every project you give our knitters is a chance to help not only yourself but also this democratically-run cooperative that provides training and other services to its members.

What kind of services do we provide? We can knit anything that’s hand knitted, from garments to accessories and more! Discover what we can do for you, whether you’re a designer, a yarn shop, a manufacturer (including high end boutiques in search of just the right knits) or a stylist. We can help take the pressure off local yarn shops in need of samples or designers working to tight deadlines — check out how simple our design process is and leave the knitting to us!

We can also expedite samples when you need them sooner rather than later. Pricing and timing options are here.

Most importantly for a creative business, we believe in maintaining the highest level of trust and integrity, especially when it comes to respecting copyright and other intellectual property. As a member of several professional needle arts organizations, and working with designers on a daily basis, we know that violating copyright does no good for anyone in our business. If you need designers to implement your handknit projects, we are happy to put you in touch with the best in the business, but we don’t do knockoffs of others’ work.

We look forward to speaking with you about your next project! Get a quote today and make Fair Trade Knitters a part of your knitting success story.
