Kenana Knitters Homespun Shelf Lion
Super cool sitting lion with a gorgeous mane. Designed to sit on a shelf with his legs dangling down. This lion is kinda goofy big hearted and fun. I would take him off the shelf and treat him to endless cuddles.
These Kenana Knitter animals make the best handmade gifts for a baby shower or kids birthday. Beautifully knitted soft toys that are destined to be lifelong friends. Each soft toy comes with a tag explaining the story of the Kenana Knitters and the name of the person who made the toy. They are just the right size to tuck into a backpack and the perfect friend for cuddling.
- Homespun wool approx 20cm in length seated and 15 cm wide
- Hand crafted by the Kenana Knitters in Kenya using homespun wool, naturally dyed with local plants, vegetables and flowers.
About Kenana Knitters
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.
