Swittens

These Swittens are created from upcycled wool sweaters. They are fleece-lined and hand-sewn by a group of women in Evergreen, Colorado who make up our Evergreen Circle of volunteers. All of the proceeds go to support Friendship Bridge, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization creating opportunities that empower women in Guatemala to build a better life.

Each pair of Swittens has been handcrafted from wool sweaters and turned into mittens, thus the name, Swittens (sweaters + mittens). One Switten has a textile swatch from Guatemala. When you place your hand into the Switten, you are symbolically touching the life of a Guatemalan woman by helping her improve business and the life of her family.

Prior to construction, the sweaters are washed, which makes them more dense, and thus warmer. The patterns of the different sweaters combine to make each pair a unique creation. These Swittens are truly the warmest and softest you’ve ever worn.
