ORITOKnitwear

Children's cardigans handmade by women in Colombia

Berlin, Germany

Announcement    All our products are handmade by Colombian women in small quantities using traditional techniques. With every purchase of an ORITO garment, we can financially support children in Colombia.

Together with my mother, I founded ORITO in 2017. Our goal is to produce beautiful knitwear for children and at the same time to support people in need in Colombia. 10% of the costs will be donated to Kinderhilfe für Colombia e.V. to support children and socially disadvantaged families in Colombia. These families are often victims of violence. In search of life and survival opportunities, they flee from the rural areas to the large conurbations and are destitute there. This project was inspired by a group of retired women. Together with my mother, this group manufactures the products that ORITO offers for sale here.

The name ORITO comes from a city in the state of Putumayo in the south of Colombia, not far from the border with Ecuador. It is a place full of beauty and lovely people. An inspiration for our products.

    10 years ago I came to Germany to study textile design. Today I live in Berlin and do this project, among other things. In doing so, I follow my heart and strengthen the connection with my home country Colombia.
