As always, our kantha blankets, made in Bangladesh, are our first love. Kantha minis have been given and loved by many. In fact, our kantha mini sales have provided enough for half a year of work for a woman in Bangladesh. Amazing! There is no end in sight and we only want more!
We’ve also seen how much women want to shop for gifts that mean more. This is never truer than when it comes to finding the best baby shower gift!
We’ve added two new series of products made with dignity to our shop to help you find the best baby shower gift or to outfit your own nursery (or living room!):
New Wooden Bird Mobiles are hand-carved in Rwanda by a family business, building on over 40 years of woodworking experience. They are sturdy & solid, but with a delicate look in calming colours (all white, pinks & purples, citrus, or natural/unpainted). The smooth, curved lines work as well with a rustic look as in modern nursery decor.
Our new series of rattle toys have the same provenance as our kantha blankets: Bangladesh. Pebble began out of a love of the people of Bangladesh and a desire to create employment that fit with the rhythm of village life. By providing women with flexible working opportunities that are close to their homes, there is less need for economic migration to the cities. We love this vision that honours & abets traditional life!
