Welcome to www.handknits.org - an online store which sells sweaters, garments, tops, kids wear and many such other knitted wearables which are hand made in India. Garments are knitted and crocheted with yarn manufactured in India as well as in abroad as per the strict patterns of overseas parties. All products sold on handknits.org - an initiative by Divyant Impex Corporation, are knitted by women, who due to various reasons could not get formal education but on whom their entire families depend for survival. Alka Bhotika, the propreitor of DIC, supports these women by training them and helping them earn their livelihood. Hence, by purchasing any product on this site, you will be supporting these families. The site has a unique collection of garments in various styles and color knitted by hand with very reasonable rates.
DIC, which was started as a small time company in 1997 with an intention to provide an opportunity for the uneducated / lesser educated female masses to support themselves has eventually developed into one of the largest organizations in Kolkata, India, having a turnover of over USD 5.5 Million and a working unit of 500 knitters! We intend to continue and grow with your support and blessings to provide a larger base to many more women as such.
