Meet the Artisans
Sita has been working as a knitter for over 20 years now and she is passionate about the need to continue the craft of hand knitting, which has been passed down through generations. She learned knitting from her mother, who learned it from her grandmother. Sita leads and takes responsibility for her team of 10 knitters. The women come to knit at Sita’s home after they are done with morning house chores on week days. Sita is a very social person who loves the constant flow of women who come in to seek her guidance to knit while chit chatting over milk tea about life – in general.
