In 2004, Lantern Moon established an educational trust fund to benefit the children of these families. The natural materials that inspire their designs are combined with traditional handcrafting skills that have passed down from generation to generation in these families. Their knitting needles are crafted in a family owned and managed business that provides training and opportunities that contribute to the economic and social well being of the areas where they are produced.
