Since we started selling KidKnits kits, we’ve been looking for a way of allowing people to make their finished hats uniquely KidKnits.  This past summer, when we were in Kenya, we learned of a group, called Uhunzi, that makes amazing tags out of recycled aluminum, and we wondered if this could be our answer.  After learning much more about the story of these tags, we were certain we had found our answer.  The raw material for the tags is scrap aluminum, collected from around the slums of Nairobi.  All of their molds are made from sand which is a by-product from glass making.  Their furnace is powered by recycled engine oil.  They have five employees from around Kenya.  Finally, they produce a beautiful hand-stamped product, which will soon be included in all KidKnits kits!
