Organic Cotton Hand Puppet Lion

Price: £19.00 £11.50

Beautiful hand knitted puppets. Good quality with lots of character! Great for storytelling

This lion has been hand knitted in soft organic cotton by a team of knitters in a small rural town in Southwest China, as part of a project launched more than a decade ago aimed at providing local employment that enabled families to stay together, when the alternative involved parents migrating for work in the big cities, leaving the children to grow up with their grandparents.

The knitters meet frequently at ChunkiChilli's knitting centre in the town, but also knit at home and are frequently seen knitting in the local streets, shops and tea houses, and waiting for children, and now more often grandchildren, outside the local school.
