INHABITOTS: Hand-Knit Pals and Cotton Cuddlies at Branch

We’re suckers for the cute and cuddly, and it doesn’t get much better than these Senger  and Dwelling  stuffed animals and finger puppets from Branch . Hard to resist even for adults, these adorable products are personally monitored by their importer for the welfare of the artisans, ensuring fair and open trade practices and safe working conditions. The hand-knit wool ‘puppet pals’ are made by a women’s collective of knitters in rural Kenya, and the wool yarn is colored from natural vegetable-based dyes. Purchasing these handcrafted products not only brings joy to your loved ones, but helps promote a better life for the artisans and their families.
Branch also offers the double-duty organic cotton pals by Senger Tierpuppen  of Germany. They are great to cuddle with as is, but can also be warmed. A removable packet of cherry stones can be heated atop a radiator or stove and zipped into the toy for warm snuggling.
