Social Enterprise in Transylvania – Rosia Montana

The story of Made in Rosia Montana started at the end of 2013, right before Christmas when Tică Darie was given a pair of woollen socks from a local woman who was passionate about knitting.

 

The picture of the socks was then posted on Facebook. In two days, more than a hundred pairs of socks were ordered. In a span of two weeks, 20 women from the village took to knitting the socks. Within three months around 300 pairs of socks had been delivered.

 

A year later, Made in Rosia Montana was founded and in January 2015 the online shop was launched. Available Handmade Merino Wool Knitwear – Made in Rosia Montana
