About Us

High in the Andes, a Grandma is Knitting for you. 

 

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!

Production

DOING BUSINESS IN PERU 

 

Notes from Connie: I’ve been spit at by an Alpaca in Cusco, held at gunpoint in Lima and had our imports seized by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol in El Paxo.  So, why do we keep doing business in Peru?  Because our Peruvian partners are wonderful to work with, the people are kind and warm and we love the country.

 

 

 

TWITTEN PRODUCT LINE - INTEGRITY, RESPECT AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Jen in Peru - Twitten

 

Peruvian handicrafts today have evolved from the tremendous creative output of the native population in the Andes since Pre-Colombian times.

 

The majority of our line is produced by women in Puno.  These expert knitters work outdoors on the shores of Lake Titicaca at an elevation of 12,500 feet.  The yarns they use -100% Alpaca or a blend of 50% Alpaca, 30% Wool 20% Acrylic - are made in Arequipa (elev. 7,600 ft.).
