Kohl Crecelius and his team of close friends are on a mission to revolutionize what it means to do business and to do good. After his brother taught him to crochet in high school, he passed the skill on to his friends Travis and Stewart and began selling their crocheted masterpieces to anyone who would buy them. Officially dubbed the “Krochet Kids” by their local newspaper in Spokane, WA, they then founded KK intl. (known as Krochet Kids intl.) as college students in 2007. With the mission to teach people in developing countries how to crochet as a means of breaking the cycle of poverty, KK intl. now provides women in Uganda and Peru with work, mentorship, and education to empower them to have brighter future while creating unique gifts that give back.
