ChiaoGoo is proud to support the African Blackwood Conservation Project (ABCP), an organization committed to replanting African Blackwood and raising awareness about the international importance of the tree as well as improving the standard of living in communities where they work.

A Blackwood seedling will be planted and nurtured at the ABCP for each Forté set purchased.
ChiaoGoo was born in China where manufacturing began in the 1980's using bamboo knitting needles as the main source of income for the Zheng family. The maternal figure was in constant need of better needles and is the driving force behind ChiaoGoo, which means "highly Skillful and crafty lady". Leon Zheng, one of four brothers, started the distribution center in Troy, MI so that these wonderful goods could also be designed and marketed in America. His distribution center is responsible for all needle designs since 2005 as well as equipment and manufacturing upgrades. While the needles are still made in China, this company is of both China and the United States.
Every ChiaoGoo product purchased through an authorized ChiaoGoo dealer carries a product lifetime guarantee from manufacturing defect.
