Mitts are self-help
Coffee Beanies mitts are a way out of poverty for a hard-working Burundian family. In fact, when an African knitter makes one beanie a week, she doubles the family's income. The fastest knitter can make two hats a day, the equivalent of two pairs of mitts.
For a style to be included in our range, it must meet certain requirements:
- there are many "labour-hours" in the product which gives the woman a lot of work.
- there is new learning, so the woman can become more skilled and start selling things for the home market herself.
- it's a fairly easy recipe so we can quickly invite new women on board for a job.
- will it disturb the balance at home unnecessarily or can she continue looking after her children and also still do field work
