Did you know?
Granny’s Finest was founded in 2011 by two Dutch men: Niek and Jip. It all began when Niek visited his grandpa in a retirement home and met a lady who was knitting and asked whom she was knitting for. She didn’t have an answer as she did not many people around anymore. Knitting was just a hobby and a way to pass the time. Niek saw the connection between her beautiful handwork and people who enjoy handmade items and discussed these ideas with his friend Jip. Jip researched the idea for his study and after graduation the two friends launched a pilot project. That is how Granny’s Finest began!
Designed by the new
Together with our skilled grannies, young fashion designers develop beautiful patterns for crocheting, knitting and embroidery. The designers know the current fashion and the grannies are masters in the various crafts. Through this cooperation, the young learn from the old and vice versa. By collaborating with the Granny’s Finest brand, young designers gain exposure and experience in the fashion industry.
Produced by the best
As mentioned earlier, our grannies are skilled artisan crafters. In the earlier generations, women often made the clothes for family and friends, which created a personal connection between the women and the wearer. With a Granny’s Finest product this personal connection is brought back as every product has a label with a message from the granny who made it. Our grannies come together in several clubs where they can socialize, chitchat and have an enjoyable afternoon together. Many grannies make new friends and become engaged with the social enterprise, thereby reducing loneliness amongst senior citizens.
