Hand Knitted Critter
Handknitted by Kenana Knitters in rural Kenya, these gorgeous little critters are bursting with personality.
The Tembo Elephant is hand crafted using homespun wool, naturally dyed with local plants, vegetables and flowers. It has a lovely natural and rustic look, and is perfect for little hands.
Nyani Gorilla is made from soft African grown organic cotton. The natural yarn is dyed with non-toxic dyes. This gorilla has a cheeky expression, sits upright and is very cuddly.
Each critter is sold separatley (Gorilla £28/ Elephant £22.50) and comes with a tag naming the knitter, so it can be traced back to its maker.
Each one is unique and crafted by hand. The ethos of the brand is to provide a source of income at a fair wage that goes directly into the hands of the women, enabling them to improve the quality of life for themselves and their families.
Your purchase enables women to knit a brighter future through additional skills development offerings including IT courses and literacy classes. Kenana Knitters also invests in the overall welfare of the women by providing VCT, Family Planning and Health Clinics.
