Ingenzi Knit Union Scarves in Anthropologie!!!

 Check out the rust/pumpkin infinity scarf on the model (and below), made by the members of the Ingenzi Knit Union in Rwanda.  Partners Indego Africa made this happen, providing an income for over 80 members of the Ingenzi Knit Union cooperative union, soon to number 150 with the addition of a fifth and, soon, a sixth primary cooperative.

You can purchase one of these amazingly soft and colorful scarves here.  You can learn more about our partner, Indego Africa, now a partner of the Ingenzi Knit Union, here and here.

The kniters made over 4,500 Sarapo scarves in record time and are continuing to work with Indego Africa to grow their business and help more and more members.

You can also meet members of the Ingenzi Knit Union here.  Their website is still in development, but you can see many of their members.
