WorldGranny launches its productline ByWorldGranny in the Netherlands. These are unique handmade products designed by young Dutch designers and knitted by experienced hands of grannies in Peru. Have you ever heard of a 'Granny Square', a classic knitting skill? Have you ever come across a knitted unicorn?
WorldGranny presents them at Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy.
In the presence of the Minister of Education, Culture and Science, Jet Bussemaker, and with a pisco sauer at hand, the unicorn will come to live.

WorldGranny supports self-help groups of elderly people, especially knitting circles.Currently these are active in Peru, which produces fantastic, natural wool and cotton. Knitting together helps strengthening contacts between the participants. The payment they receive for their work helps the grannies to enlarge their income and thus set up their own pension plan.
