Kenana Knitters – Orangutan

Introducing the most adorably cuddly animals to join the Adinkra toy collection.

These heirloom quality toys make a special gift for newborn babies, they look adorable on the nursery shelf and they will sure to be treasured once bub is old enough to give these soft knitted toys some loving cuddles.

The orangutan knitted toys comes in 1 size, approx 30cm height.

We have a range of knitted animals available: zebra, cowechidna, elephant,
koala and sheep.

These knitted animal toys are hand crafted by the artisan group, Kenana Knitters based in Kenya. Local Kenyan, Patricia Nightingale, founded the group in 1998.  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.
