Knitting for Impact
AzerbaijaniSocks’ vision is to provide fairly paid, flexible employment for women in the rural parts of Azerbaijan, through a craft that has continued for generations, and to provide a cozy, handmade, unique, quality product to sell outside of Azerbaijan. These socks are knit in homes, allowing women to work from home to earn income for their families. Each sock is made with unique colours and designs. These socks are a combination of high quality yarn, hours of labor, and modernised versions of traditional designs.
