The latest knit product from Krochet Kids, this new zippered laptop case joins the socially-minded outfit's line of beanies in empowering developing regions by encouraging sustainable businesses. Employing Northern Ugandan women to hand-knit the case using locally-sourced yarn, a seamstress sews the liner, zipper and label.

To extend their aid even further, Krochet Kids will give half of all proceeds to children's education initiatives. The Steven comes in three colorways, fits a 13" Macbook, and runs $50 from their online shop.
