One Colour


2018 brings change to One Colour. We are is still committed to trading ethically. We will continue to do this through our work with the Kenana Knitters in Kenya - take a look at the (non retail) website Kenana Down Under for more information

The knowledge that extreme poverty is still experienced by well over 1 billion people, leaves me with no choice but to act. One Colour is how I choose to do that. Our ability to create change in the world starts with a belief that it’s possible and then to find a way to do it. One Colour is me finding that way.

FOUNDER

Di Stitt grew up in Sydney working in corporate private enterprise as a PA for 10 years. In 1993 she moved to the Hunter Valley to raise her family and in 2006 she moved to Brisbane, where she happily calls home.

After visiting South Africa in 2007 Di made her first trip to Kenya in 2008.

Africa is a beautiful, ancient continent teaming with life and opportunity. One of the most motivating aspects of One Colour is that each year I meet with inspirational African partners. Their example compels and inspires me.’

The knowledge that extreme poverty is still experienced by many millions of people, and the conversely extreme good fortune of life in Australia, left Di with no option but to act. And indeed, for the past decade she has supported much needed work and stability to many families in Kenya.
