Gracias Carmen! I received your gorgeous hat for Christmas. It was a lovely gift from a friend, and even better because it was made by you in Peru. I actually lived in Lima with my daughter in 2005.

Dear Carmen,
I just moved across the United States from Arkansas, then to Oklahoma for the last year and a half, and am now in southern Oregon. I live for love and am captivated by travel. Dreams don't come true by sitting around and waiting. You've gotta work for what you want, and that's why I admire you and your hard work. My bf and I went to Florence Beach, it was a little chilly for a sun hat, so we went into a small shop... where I fell head over for a maroon knit cap. I was a little weary about spending $30 for it so we left. Then we came back, I admired it a bit more, and I still couldn't get myself to buy it. Well, my bf saw me adoring the cap and bought it for me while I wasn't paying any attention. Today, I found the tag inside with your name on it and that's what brought me to this site. I love all of your work and hope to invest in more of your collection. Thank you and good luck with your dreams. You're an aspiring artist, and don't let anyone tell you different!
XOxo Patti

I hope you are doing well, and I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors. Thank you again!

Hi Carmen! When I saw the Rainier, I knew I had to get it! It was a bit pricey compared to other hats in the store I was in (Newbury Comics on Newbury Street in Boston, MA), but it also looked like it was the best hat for me. Thank you!!

P.S. I'm a graphic designer and web designer/developer who is working on a fashion line as well. I would love to collaborate with you in the future! The brand will be called, "WeÖm", and should be releasing something towards the end 2013. I'll come back then and see what you're up to.

"The hat is great! Thank you!" Is what my 5 1/2 year old son says to you this Christmas. :) I am so thankful as well to be able to gift this hat, read your story to him and make him aware of what it looks like to be a conscientious consumer, especially at Christmas. Thanks for all you do, and thanks KK for putting the scannable tag and name on each hat!

Dear Carmen,
I bought my hat yesterday afternoon, and I already love it to bits and pieces! It matches the handmade scarf my grandmother made me last year, and also matches the handmade mittens my mother bought for me. Not only that, but it fits my head like a charm! It's like it was made just for me. It will no doubt keep me warm in this New England weather! Thank you! :)
& I hope you accomplish your goals and dreams, and I'm sure that if you gave it your all (which I'm sure you are) that you'll be one of the greatest, and most influential, fashion designer that the fashion world has ever seen. Good luck with everything!
Warmest regards,
- Nicole

Dear Carmen,

I went to a concert yesterday and was introduced to the Krochet Kids agency. The organization sounds amazing and I wanted to support it and support all the women who have created a business for themselves. It is truly inspirational. I bought a beanie that is so beautiful and when it is not so hot out look I forward to wearing it. It is beige with turquoise and navy blue stripes. I loved the colors you used. Thank you so much for a such a beautiful product and I wish you all the best!
Sincerely,
Jamie
