The Toockie Project is a women’s cooperative in Nababpur, India. It began as an idea of a way for women to help themselves by creating handcrafted items from home. Today, over 210 women, desperate for a dignified way to earn a living, have been mobilized and trained to knit Toockies. Knitters have access to a community center where they can come to train, pick-up yarn, knit, or drop off finished pieces. Most knitters work flexible hours from home. The Toockie Project opens an unimaginable door of opportunity for the knitters and empowers them to take charge of their own destiny. Each Toockies package is signed by the knitter who created the cloths. See the women artisans who knit the cloths here.
