Aspen Fashion Week is thrilled to have Krochet Kids International as one of our non-profit partners for 2012.
It all started with three high school guys who loved having unique headwear on the mountain. The trio began crocheting and they quickly recognized that their hobby could turn into a business. After spending college summers in various nations around the world, they realized that they could teach crochet as a means of breaking the cycle of poverty.
