Each of our toys is hand knit by a Peruvian women’s cooperative of artisans.  The purchase of this product directly supports them and the price paid assures a fair living wage for everyone involved in production.

Our toys are eco-friendly.  How exactly?  We offer these hypoallergenic plush knit toys as an alternative to petroleum based plastics manufacturing.  Hand knitting uses a fraction of the energy compared to that of heavy factory machinery.  We also look to use natural wools and fibers, and when possible, plant based dyes.  Read more on our Social Responsibility.
