The Twitten has been 40 years in the making.
For frigid University of Pennsylvania football games in the mid-sixties, Connie Kaiserman knit her first Twitten for Steve Robinson so they could hold hands during those tense fourth downs. Several decades and professions later Connie met Jennifer Isaacson who has spent a lifetime sourcing materials all over the world and designing everything from textiles to furniture. Together they launched the Twitten line.
P.S. The Twitten® worked. Connie and Steve are still together!
Hand-crafted - Women Operated
Twitten LLC is 100% women-owned and operated. The entire Twitten® Line is Fair Trade and Handcrafted in Peru by artisans whose work supports and sustains traditional communities.
Artisan Development Program
Jennifer is working with a group of young women living in the small village of Chinchero in the Peruvian highlands. Because these women never learned traditional weaving, we have developed a program that teaches local women to knit handmade products specifically for the U.S. market with the additional goal of keeping their cultural traditions alive. The women of Chinchero are so excited, for the first time their goods will be sold in the U.S and abroad.
