Safe, Eco-friendly Materials
Pebble’s wide selection of soft cotton toys and accessories are all handmade with child-safe materials such as 100% organic hand-twisted cotton yarn, pure cotton and all colors are achieved with non-toxic dyes. All products are also machine washable.
Fair Trade Standards
Pebble products are made by women employed by an organization called Hathay Bunano. Hathay Bunano means “hand made or hand knitted” in Bangla, the language of Bangladesh. The mission of this organization is to help create fairly paid, good quality, flexible and local employment for rural women who are poor and often disadvantaged. Austin Miller, owner of Kahiniwalla, the exclusive distributor of Pebble in the U.S., notes, “Pebble products are made by a Fair Trade organization, giving the dignity of a job to more than 5,000 impoverished women in Bangladesh. These women earn 25 percent more than the local minimum wage and are able to work near their children. It’s a very successful model for social enterprise.”
The Pebble Toy Collection
The Pebble collection, much of which is brand new for 2014, is packed with softness and color. From cuddly animal friends to unique monster buddies to cars and much more – there’s a toy for every child in this collection.
Toys for Every Age
