knitted llama

 

Fairtrade cuddly knitted llamas 

These are made by a small group of women in Peru. These women have incredible abilities to knit but previously were unable to channel their talent in a marketable way.

In order to make a living they took on poorly paid jobs which inevitably meant they were never able to escape the cycle of poverty. They live in Huancavelica which is among the poorest areas of Peru.

100% organic cotton with natural dyes. Available in Blue, Pink or Pale green.
