Our social enterprise of the month for July is Granny's Finest.
Granny's Finest is a fashion brand which brings together designers and older people to combat loneliness.
Where are they?
Rotterdam, The Netherlands with dealers all over the country.
What do they do?
Products such as hats scarves and gloves are designed by young creative people. Granny’s Finest then organise handicraft clubs for older people to make the products. These are then sold and the proceeds are used to support further activities for older people.
Why we like them?
They make beautiful products. They have a simple mission. We like their strapline: “Designed by the new, produced by the best, worn by the greatest.” Everyone benefits - young designers build their portfolio, older people reduce loneliness and you can buy lovely stuff.
They also have a great statement about why they are a social enterprise.
