Kootenay Knit Collections include a range of high-quality, unique and fashionable knitwear, headwear, apparel and accessory products. We design and ethically produce product lines and look to add new products and collections that have purpose and tell a story.
The Eco-Friendly collection includes our Hemp blend beanies. Hemp is a super plant that has virtually no need for herbicides and its long root system reduces soil compaction while also providing nutrient diversity to the soil. Hemp is an environmentally friendly option that provides warmth, softness and superior durability. We will be adding more products to this Eco-Friendly collection.
Inspired by our Canadian culture and pride in our local communities, the Canadiana collection is classic and timeless with a modern edge made up of “Get Red!”, maple leaf and heritage products including mitts, beanies, pom hats, ball caps, headbands, neck warmers and scarfs.
New to Kootenay Knit, is the Artisan Collection made up of product that is handmade and crafted with minimum automation by skilled women from the foothills of the Himalayas in Nepal. We are excited to partner with Laundromat and Lost Horizons to offer their Fair Trade products in Canada.
Laundromat is a Fair Trade knitwear company based in Quebec, Canada and Kathmandu, Nepal. They have been hand-crafting 100% pure wool sweaters and knitted accessories in partnership with Nepali artisans since 1993.
Lost Horizons is fully accredited by the Fair Trade Federation of North America as well and has a 30-year history of partnering with women in Nepal. The collection is made up of hand-knitted and embroidered cold weather accessories exclusively for women that are rich in color with luxurious textures and feminine designs that showcase skilled hand-embroidery.
