About beyondBeanie
Creator Swiss-Chilean, Tito Hector Alvarez, came up with the idea of beyondBeanie during his pack-backing trip from Switzerland to Bolivia. He noticed the presence of lady-knitters and street children selling candy and loose cigarettes at busy intersections in La Paz, Bolivia. One of his friends, Paty Lucero, explained that although Bolivia is a beautiful country, it still remains one of the poorest countries in Latin America. To combat the level of gender inequality and orphan children, Alvarez and Lucero teamed up to start a small fashion project, which turned into a socially conscious company named beyondBeanie. Today their goal is to meet and exceed their customers’ expectations by providing one of a kind, handmade pieces that are stylish and help women and children receive essentials such as dental care, school supplies, and food.
