Let’s face it. Our gadget lust is largely a selfish urge. But what if we could buy a product that would not only sate our gadget appetite, but also help someone at the other end of the supply chain? The Steven laptop sleeve from Krochet Kids intl (KKi) is one such product. The construction of this sleeve, designed for 13″ Macbooks, takes place in the same fashion as other KKi products; through the life-changing employment of war-affected women in Northern Uganda. Hand-crocheted with yarns from Kenya and an organic cotton lining derived from Uganda. Liner, zipper and labeling are sewn on by a local Ugandan seamstress. Also, half of all proceeds of these cases will be given to childrens’ education initiatives. The Steven fulfills the KKi mission statement “to empower people to rise above poverty.” Available in Buenos Aires blue, Bradford red and Blue Grey, $49.95. Come alongside their work by sharing this story, or purchasing a new laptop case or other item.
