These naturals or bright little critters and decoration style have 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 a colourful scarf and their own little card telling the Kenana Knitter story and giving the name of the knitter. Each decoration style has a little red ribbon. Approximately 12cm when seated.
Kenana Knitters is a grassroots organisation situated near Njoro (Rift Valley area of Kenya) and was founded in 1998 by 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. With a vision to further impact the community, 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.
