We are delighted to be working with KnitPro to bring you this exciting knit and crochet tour to India. Along with visiting the highlights of New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur we’ll also enjoy a warm welcome at the KnitPro factory and visit the local school that they support. Two half-day workshops will be given by Carol Meldrum during our tour.  

In association with KnitPro

If you are a regular knitter or crocheter, the chances are that you have a KnitPro needle, hook, or one of the many handy accessories they make in your project bag. Launched just ten years ago, KnitPro has swept the globe, but there is so much more to the brand than its high-quality products. At its heart lies an inclusive, philanthropic ethos.

KnitPro has a huge commitment to all its workers and their families to try and make the world a better place for them. The KnitPro factory employs around 900 people, and nearly 400 of them are women, much higher than most businesses in India, something the company is extremely proud of. Any woman that turns up at their factory asking for a job is given one, and transport to and from work is provided for free. Men working at the factory are given a bicycle so they can get to work, no matter how remote their homes are.

We believe that empowering women can have a profound effect on their communities. We are a relatively small business but the small changes we can make have an important impact.
 
When I ask our staff in the factory what they would like knitters and crocheters to take from our brand, they want KnitPro to delight its users. We want our brand to be what happiness looks and feels like and we are proud of what we have achieved so far - Shirish Jain, Vice President of Marketing at KnitPro
