These lovely knitted accessories were made by women living in Durres, Albania. All of the women in this particular cooperative are living with some sort of physical disability that makes it difficult for them to work outside of their homes. Most are living with abuse, and some of their daughters are at risk of being trafficked by family members for money for the family. The women have been employed to knit products like you see here, and that work provides for their families, allows them to work from home, and protects their daughters from the horrors of human trafficking. Your purchase can make a difference!
