Doesn't it just capture everything you love about Winter?

Ever wondered who invented them? Read our blog post here and see the fun facts we just discovered

Last year we travelled to Katmandu, Nepal to get some very special beanies made.

We met an inspiring couple, who have set up a social enterprise teaching women escaping poverty, abuse and disadvantage to knit the most beautiful unisex beanies for men and women. We asked if they could make them in Bamboo :) Sourcing the most luxurious quality of bamboo blended with Merino Wool, our limited edition Bamboo Monkey beanies have been created, available in black and grey marle.

Why is buying ethically made so important?

Because you are not just buying a beanie, you are changing someones life. By empowering them financially you are giving them the ability to escape a life of poverty. You are giving them the freedom to live independently and self sufficiently.

By supporting artisans in slow fashion enterprises, we can ensure that a living wage has been paid, that a safe and secure work environment exists, and that no one is being exploited.

Of course you can buy beanies for men and women a lot cheaper than ours. They are likely made from man made fibres and/or produced via an automated knitting machine, in a manufacturing centre in the developing world.

At Bamboo Monkey we believe wearing Bamboo is a climate positive choice we can all make. It is up to each individual to decide what their carbon footprint will be.
