Shared Threads is delighted to invite you to an evening with Danielle Chiel the founder of KOCO – Knit One Change One. Danielle will share the inspiring story of her rapidly growing entrepreneurial partnership with women living in rural villages of southern India. She has taught hundreds of women to knit and they are now producing cat-walk standard hand-knitted garments for the international textile industry. In doing so, she has stimulated local economic growth and employment and witnessed social and economic empowerment amongst the women involved.
Danielle will talk about her fascinating journey and invite us to join her Danielle Chiel Connect India Tour. Guided by Danielle herself, participants are able to meet the local artisans who work with Danielle, sitting and talking with them as they work, hearing their stories as well as cooking and eating with them in their homes.
