Sustainable knitted jewelry, and more

Anabel Fournier lives between Kenya and Bolivia where she produces a beautiful knit collection called Fournier. She started a poverty alleviation project while living in Bolivia eight years ago, providing work for low income women in the city of Cochabamba. There are around 80 knitters and seamstresses at the workshop year round producing Fournier and also private label brought by Anabel. Fournier is manufactured with the finest Peruvian pima cotton, baby alpaca and a new blend of baby alpaca with bamboo. Don't miss the new baby toys and knitted jewelry at Bubble New York next Sunday!
