Not only socks...
Socially useful and economically sustainable.
Trying to participate in the revival of mountain economic activities, ELBEC has launched a Widespread Handmade Manufacturing project for the knitting of head-bands and climbing hats in Val Pettorina.
Anyone who knows how to work crochet can participate by working from home, during their own preferred times. The idea is to contribute to income integration by involving the people of the valley in a common project that values human heritage and manual skills that are otherwise slowly disappearing.
The knitting products are entirely handmade, giving creative freedom to the person who creates the hat in terms of combination of colours. We supply only shape and yarn. The merino wool as well as the cotton we use are strictly 100% extra fine BIO Organic and Chlorine-free, GOTS and ICEA certified.
Currently we use the highest quality in terms of ORGANIC yarns for knitwear.
