About

Hi my name is Isa and I would like to introduce you to Poyen.

In mapudungan, one of Chiles native languages Poyen means Love.

Poyen is a family company. Born out of necessity and of course Love.

In the beginning to fund my studies as an architect I was knitting hats and selling them in the local Chilean ski resorts. When my husband, Felipe also an architect, first saw my hats, he fell in love and thus our first child Poyen was born. Soon after, we moved Maitencillo on the Pacific coast to have a better quality of life away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We saw Poyen as a way to be independent and also to help and connect with the community.

In the years that followed we saw the birth of our next two children. Poyen has given me the opportunity to work from home and be there to see them grow. As Poyen has blossomed over the last 6 years we have sought the help of local ladies in the community, ladies that have grown up without the opportunities that we have had. Their craftsmanship is amazing and they are as grateful as we are for the opportunity to work together, it is a win win situation.

This last year however we had a major setback, and not wanting to abandon Poyen, our first baby, or the amazing women that have helped us along the way we are asking your help to kick-start Poyen again, and reach out even further.

Thank you for your support!!!

Isa, Felipe, Poyen and every one of our women knitters Families.

We like to go very far, here our reasons and dreams

Our impact reaches children ,  at-risk women, helps to improve their education, their health, which consequently brings long-term benefits, trying to reduce social differences.

   
  

Risks and challenges

Our challenges are the commitment that every woman takes to be part of Poyen, where the effort and improvement makes women workers prevail, when we see that one does not meet their own goals, give way and opportunity for new members, which enriches the group .

We are now able to make 1000 caps per month, and estimates that a reward would be at home between 1 month from the end of the campaign, and to produce well and with time, after all the idea is to make a great delivery , just have your hat on Christmas.

Our challenge is to reinvent ourselves every year, creating new collections, innovative and original in order to maintain and hopefully increase the social impact we have.
