Soft, cuddly, and hand-knit, the Snuggle Bush Knit Animal is the sweetest gift! Made from soft organic cotton, each plush buddy makes a great friend and makes a big impact on the women who create them!
A group of women inspired by their wildlife in Zambia and the need to protect it, got together in 2013 to to use their skills to make soft toys for children and adults alike. Working on the edge of Lusaka, they now have two women groups in the city and have supplied toys to the USA, Sweden, UK and of course to many of the tourists who visit Zambia. Working closely with the Elephant Orphanage Project, based in Zambia they hope to link with many more conservation and children projects.

I purchased 2 of these, the Lion and the Monkey (and now I want the Hippo!). The are just adorable. High quality, well made. I love that they are washable. Colors are just as pictured on the website. I teach online and can't wait to use them in my teaching. They are so cute, I highly recommend them. And you are supporting fair trade!
