Wooln is a Brooklyn Hand-Made Clothing Company Which Hires Seniors to do the Knitting

At first glance, knit-goods clothing company Wooln may seem like your average cookie-cutter, hand-made shop that has been popping up all around Brooklyn in recent years. The story behind those hand-made products is much more compelling.

In this video from BRIC TV, see how Wooln is connecting with local seniors for a mutually beneficial arrangement.

Wooln has an unusual business model: it hires mostly retired women--plus so far, one man--to do the knitting. Faustine Badrichani and Margaux, founder of Wooln, handle the business end while a group of the elderly get a chance to earn extra income doing something they'd probably be doing anyway.
