BACKGROUND

In summer 2013, Tito Alvarez travelled from Switzerland to Bolivia to visit his friend Paty Lucero where he began a journey that would give a new twist to his life.

Whilst enjoying the local culture and breathtaking sceneries that Bolivia has to offer, Tito noticed many women artisans making and selling hand-made woollen products on the streets of La Paz. He also noticed the presence of street children making a living by selling sweets, doing street performances or asking tourists for money for food.

Although Bolivia is a country rich in traditions, life can be quite challenging for people such as women artisans who to an extent are the ones keeping Bolivian culture alive through their knitting and making of artisan work.

Impressed by the artisans’ creations and wanting to support their work, Tito brought some beanies back to Europe. Once winter set in, people often asked him where he got the cool and colourful beanies from. And thus the idea for beyondBeanie  was born.
