Fashion Accessories/Anu Jackets

KNIT LOCALLY now has fashion accessories, featuring gorgeous handmade jackets/vest/scarves by ANU. These garments are made in SA8000 certified production facilities. It is the mission of Social Accountability International (SAI) to promote human rights for workers around the world.

The garments are made of a very soft, lightweight wool that doesn't wrinkle, and feels like cotton against the skin.

Any of these would enhance your wardrobe or be a great gift for that special someone on your list, and are not available in other area shops.
