The founder, Lutta Enevold, is a true friend of the people in and around Kathmandu. Traveling with her husband on his climbing trips in the area she also got to know the people in the villages. She saw many of the people struggling economically and wanted to help out. Some of the ladies living in the villages were already enthusiastic knitters, and as a knitter herself the idea of creating something together came up. This was more than 20 years ago and the first beanie, the Classic, came into being.
