This Shamba Puppy is an absolute classic toy for young and old. This sustainable toy has been hand made using African grown organic cotton and carefully created by the Kenana Knitters.
The natural yarn is dyed with non-toxic dyes. Most small cotton critters come with their own little card telling the Kenana Knitter story and giving the name of the knitter.
The size is approximately 18cm standing.
Who are the Kenana Knitters?
Kenana Knitters is a grassroots organisation situated near Njoro (Rift Valley area of Kenya) by a local Kenyan, Patricia Nightingale. Patricia wanted to assist local ladies who were lacking a market for their homespun wool. Over time with clever designs, she and the knitters transformed the yarn into unique creations.
Kenana Knitters taught women in the area to knit beautiful, organic cotton products using local, sustainable resources. By providing a safe, family-friendly working environment, Kenana Knitters empowers women, offering them a chance to work and take charge of their lives, with pride and dignity.
