After going viral for knitting during his daily subway commute from Brooklyn to Manhattan late 2017, 45 year old Puerto Rican Knitwear Designer/Philanthropist Louis Boria aka “Brooklyn Boy Knits”, has turned his passion for fiber arts into a platform where he now works with the community. Louis has been involved with the Fiber Arts for over 10 years, when he was first introduced by his late grandmother. In 2018, Boria joined the “Hat Not Hate” anti-bully campaign, to help bring awareness to children across the country. Boria has been featured on media as varied as The New York Times, NY1, CBS News and Telemundo. He uses his platform to break down gender norms and tackle issues related to diversity and inclusion within the fiber arts community. Throughout his journey from novice knitter to designer to Tedx speaker and influencer, he has focused on helping others. He believes that creativity can help heal wounds, both our own and society’s. Boria has collaborated with fiber artists, fiber industry leaders, community partners, and school districts to provide an interactive, engaging and fun program that teaches young students to value differences.
Louis Boria, aka Brooklyn Boy Knits, is helping students create a new mindset on acceptance — one stitch at a time.
