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.

Wool is sourced locally in Kenya. It is hand carded and spun by Kenana Knitter spinners then, if needed, it is dyed at Kenana Farm using plants and vegetables.

The plants and vegetables used for dyeing are either found on the farm or purchased at local markets.

The dyed wool is washed and dried before being allocated to various orders for the knitters.

Organic cotton is sourced from Tanzania and is purchased in bulk, machine spun into a uniform yarn, bulk dyed using eco-friendly dyes and then hand knitted by the ladies.
