World Grannies knitting Dutch Design

Experienced hands x Natural materials x Dutch design

The grannies gather in Knitting Clubs in the poorest districts of Lima, Peru. At clubs they learn from other knitters, get to know Dutch design, enjoy each others company and produce unique design pieces to be later sold in The Netherlands.

The products are co-created with our designers and clients, combining the experience of our beloved seniors with the demands of the modern consumer. Each product brings you closer to our global heritage.
