Da-Mogu initiative started having for goal to promote handicraft, slow fashion, sustainable fashion industry and most of all wishing to provide professional engagement to individuals heavenly affected by pandemia consequences – elderly people, people with disabilities and socio-economically endagered. Equally important to us is to engage professional, qualified and expert knitters who can assure response to eventual huge demand as well as additional education for the knitters who would need it. We have chosen to begin with hand knitted and crocheted hats and beanies, because this is an important clothing accessory, but also the whole production process brings a lot of benefits to our knitters and to our environment. Wool hats and beanies have become a necessary clothing accessory during cold winter months and long stay outdoors, no matter if it is urban or nature environment and surroundings. Our products are made with 100% merino wool, bought from verified suppliers. Our hats and beanies are modern, creative and made with love.
