These designs, made from 100 percent reclaimed fabrics, are sure to knit a bit at your own heart-strings, as well. The design house has a manufacturing arrangement with Rwanda Knits, an initiative assisting African refugees and a sister organization Sue Rock Originals Everyone, through which designer Sue Rock gives materials to volunteers to make new clothing and accessories for Safe Horizon's survivors of domestic violence. With so much warmth and genuine style, you'll be able to brave the lowest temperatures.
