How is website design and promotion paid for?

Web development and graphic design promotion is paid for through the generous dedication and support of Ellis Bartkiewicz. Ellis works directly and tirelessly with both the volunteers, Bolivian women knitters, as well as Melina, Minkha’s Office Manager.

Ellis was first introduced to Minkha Sweaters through her close friend, Kathleen Gleeson (Minkha co-founder) in 1996 when she visited Kathleen open house sweater sale. Since then Ellis has consistently traveled to Bolivia to photograph and video the knitters, where we get all of our beautiful images as seen by through the website and posters.

In 2006, Ellis’ commitment and dedication to create social change led her to study Spanish. She now regularly practices¬† in group conversations discussing everything from South American folklore to food recipes.
