Vans teams up with Krochet Kids Intl. for a special collection of summer accessories that empowers women in need. The products are hand-crocheted by women living under the poverty line in Peru to help them rise above their conditions outside of government aide or donations. Krochet Kids also couples education along with job training so that the workers can establish their own business practices or start a new career after having worked as crocheters. The collaboration includes woven suede moccasins in grey and light tan and a nude backpack, all with colorful patterns characteristic of Peruvian culture. Each product is hand-tagged and signed by the craftsmen, making every piece unique and personal. Support Krochet Kids’s efforts by shopping the collection here.
