Cozy double thick mittens with a classic snowflake pattern.
Each of our wool accessories is crafted by hand by the artisan women of Kullvi WHIMS in Naggar, Himachal Pradesh, incorporating locally sourced wool from sheep who graze high in the mountain passes throughout the year. You will find beautiful variation in yarn thickness and colour in these handmade pieces, making each unique and one of a kind.
Our mittens are inspired by the traditional regional knitted Lahauli sock, which features a wedge shaped toe and beautiful colourwork motifs. We thought the toe shaping might translate well into a mitten pattern.
We collaborated with Indra, sending her our idea along with measurements and a sketch, and she came up with this beautiful motif set into the perfect mitt! The method used to create the alternating colours in the palm and thumb create a thick double layer for extra warmth. She designed and knit every pair, in three colour combos and two sizes.
Handwash in cool water, lay flat to dry in shade. Do not agitate. For more information, visit ourcare page.
All of our garments come in a protective muslin bag, stitched by the women of Kruti, in the village of Mulshi, Maharashtra. Kruti, a stitching unit run by Anubhuti Social Foundation, provides employment opportunities to women in rural communities, by implementing training programs in tailoring.
