These beanies are hand-crocheted by an Los Angeles-based craftivist Tsukuru Fors. Craftivists (craft + activists) are people who utilize the power and love of their crafting to make the world a more peaceful and equitable place.
The act of crocheting, hand-weaving a fabric to shape into a wearable goods, symbolizes weaving relationships and solidarity among people who may have little in common other than their shared humanity.
Tsukuru runs the "Sponsor-A-Beanie" program, giving people the opportunity to "sponsor" a beanie for $10-20 and allowing them to participate in local mutual aid programs where Tsukuru donates the proceeds and the beanies to the unhoused. Every stitch is every step forward to foster a culture of caring.
